An independent evaluation of Ubuntu Core’s security capabilities
Manufacturers of Internet of Things (IoT) devices require an embedded operating system that is feature-rich, scalable, and — most importantly — secure. Built from the ground-up to meet these requirements, Ubuntu Core represents a comprehensive ecosystem for large-scale IoT deployments that solves many of the security challenges associated with traditional Linux distribution models — while also empowering developers with unprecedented flexibility and control.
This whitepaper from global cybersecurity experts, Rule4, provides an independent, third-party evaluation of Ubuntu Core’s security capabilities. Following a data-driven approach, all aspects received extensive testing to validate the strengths of its cybersecurity controls.
Read the report to learn about:
- The features and design tenets — such as application sandboxing — that make Ubuntu Core inherently secure out-of-the-box
- The case for adopting Ubuntu Core for IoT devices in light of this testing
- Rule4’s evaluation methodology and a summary of its results, which included no critical findings
From home control to drones, robots and industrial systems, Ubuntu Core and Snaps provide robust security, app stores and reliable updates for all your IoT devices.
