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.

When we bring the build out of Yocto's care, all these little details become exposed, and we need to know what they mean for the integration.

This will be a quite technical blog post, and a certain knowledge o...
