When the Zephyr project was launched in 2016, it was just one in a crowded set of open source RTOS solutions available. Since then, it’s become one of the most active real time operating system being used for resource constrained devices with a vibrant and growing developer community. A lot of the lessons learned from the Linux kernel development were applied, but the project chose deliberately to do some things different and adopt some of the security best practices . Zephyr is one of the few open source projects that has a PSIRT team and is an actual CVE numbering authority (CNA). Zephyr has also engaged with a safety certification authority, and is working towards 61508 certification in 2024. This session will review the practices that the Zephyr community has adopted, and what has been working and other lessons learned.
