How it works

Mender is an open source project to help secure connected embedded devices by providing a safe and reliable software update process.

We know the risks of updating devices in the field. That’s why Mender uses a dual A/B rootfs partition layout, secure communication via TLS, and carries out integrity checks on images prior to deployment.

Mender currently supports Linux-based devices that use U-Boot and provides a meta layer for the Yocto Project for very easy integration with Yocto-based distributions.
