TuxMachines: Linaro Still Working On TEE For The Linux Kernel, The Trusted Execution Environment

Friday 16th of September 2016 11:26:00 PM

Besides the Greybus subsystem being right around the corner for the mainline Linux kernel, it might not be too much longer before the TEE subsystem is ready. TEE is now up to its 12th patch revision and is about trusted computing.

Linaro developers and other stakeholders continue working on TEE, the Trusted Execution Environment. The Trusted Execution Environment is for securely interfacing with a "trusted" OS running in a secure environment or on a separate co-processor. The TEE driver of this new Linux subsystem handles the communication between the host Linux OS and whatever is the trusted TEE implementation. Of course, given Linaro's involvement, the primary focus of TEE is on better supporting ARM TrustZone.

  • ARB_ES3_2_compatibility Turned On For Intel Broadwell And Newer

    The Intel Mesa OpenGL driver now exposes the ARB_ES3_2_compatibility extension.

    The Intel i965 Mesa DRI driver has already supported the necessary extensions for OpenGL ES 3.2 support while this ARB_ES3_2_compatibility extension signifies that features found in GLES 3.2 but missing from OpenGL 4.5 are present in the desktop GL driver. This extension makes it easier for bringing mobile OpenGL ES programs to the desktop.

  • Windows-DRI Extension Added For X.Org Server 1.19

    In continuation of yesterday's article about Mesa Gets Improved For Running On Windows With Cygwin, the Windows-DRI extension has landed in the X.Org Server code-base.

    This is about improving the OpenGL/GLX support on Windows in a similar manner to the X.Org Server on Mac OS X, with the primary benefactor to this being applications running under Cygwin. See yesterday's article for some more details.

TuxMachines: Samsung starts distributing Tizen devices to Russia’s Gazprom

Friday 16th of September 2016 10:58:17 PM

We have another Tizen story coming from Russia, where the platform has been doing very well. Tizen based smartphones like the Samsung Z3 are being actively used by Russia’s business and corporate sector as well as Government officials. Gazprom, which is Russia’s as well as the world’s largest Natural Gas company have now come up with a pact with Samsung to use Tizen based smartphones. To understand the kind of scale of this agreement is, it would be helpful to know that Gazprom has a global gas reserve share of 17 percent and 72 percent in Russia. Gazprom is also involved in the Russian Government’s diplomatic efforts; distortions of gas prices, and access to pipelines.

Without realizing it, I joined the open source movement in 1999 during the midst of the Kosovo refugee crisis. I was part of a team helping route aid supplies to local humanitarian organizations running transit camps across Albania. These are the camps that refugees often arrived at first before being moved to larger, more formal camps.

TuxMachines: 10 GNOME Shell Extensions You Should Be Using

Friday 16th of September 2016 10:44:00 PM

When GNOME Shell (aka GNOME 3) dropped into the world of Linux, many criticized it for not being flexible enough. The new-look GNOME was seen as a step backward in productivity and efficiency. GNOME however had a few tricks up its sleeve to silence such naysayers. One such trick is GNOME Shell Extensions, which bring some much-needed configuration options to the GNOME 3 desktop environment. Offering everything from aesthetics to actual productivity, there’s a GNOME Shell Extension to fill whatever void you see in the latest version of GNOME.

Licensing resource series: Free GNU/Linux distributions & GNU Bucks

When Richard Stallman set out to create the GNU Project, the goal was to create a fully free operating system. Over 33 years later, it is now possible for users to have a computer that runs only free software. But even if all the software is available, putting it all together yourself, or finding a distribution that comes with only free software, would be quite the task. That is why we provide a list of Free GNU/Linux distributions. Each distro on the list is commited to only distributing free software. With many to choose from, you can find a distro that meets your needs while respecting your freedom. But with so much software making up an entire operating system, how is it possible to make sure that nothing nasty sneaks into the distro? That's where you, and GNU Bucks come in. Read more

Linaro beams LITE at Internet of Things devices

Linaro launched a “Linaro IoT and Embedded” (LITE) group, to develop end-to-end open source reference software for IoT devices and applications. Linaro, which is owned by ARM and major ARM licensees, and which develops open source software for ARM devices, launched a Linaro IoT and Embedded (LITE) Segment Group at this week’s Linaro Connect event in Las Vegas. The objective of the LITE initiative is to produce “end to end open source reference software for more secure connected products, ranging from sensors and connected controllers to smart devices and gateways, for the industrial and consumer markets,” says Linaro.

  • Linaro organisation, with ARM, aims for end-end open source IoT code
    With the objective of producing reference software for more secure connected products, ranging from sensors and connected controllers to smart devices and gateways, for the industrial and consumer markets, Linaro has announced LITE: Collaborative Software Engineering for the Internet of Things (IoT). Linaro and the LITE members will work to reduce fragmentation in operating systems, middleware and cloud connectivity solutions, and will deliver open source device reference platforms to enable faster time to market, improved security and lower maintenance costs for connected products. Industry interoperability of diverse, connected and secure IoT devices is a critical need to deliver on the promise of the IoT market, the organisation says. “Today, product vendors are faced with a proliferation of choices for IoT device operating systems, security infrastructure, identification, communication, device management and cloud interfaces.”
  • An open source approach to securing The Internet of Things
  • Addressing the IoT Security Problem
    Last week's DDOS takedown of security guru Brian Krebs' website made history on several levels. For one, it was the largest such reported attack ever, with unwanted traffic to the site hitting levels of 620 Gbps, more than double the previous record set back in 2013, and signalling that the terabyte threshold will certainly be crossed soon. It also relied primarily on compromised Internet of Things devices.
