Learning the Basics of Apache NiFi for IoT - Timothy J Spann, Cloudera
I will teach the basics of using Apache NiFi to process data commonly acquired from IoT including MQTT, REST, Kafka, Syslog, tailing files, python output, sFTP, files and more. We will walk through some best practices for building flows for solving IoT ingest issues for sensor data and other edge data sources.

Game of Protocols: How To Pick a Network Protocol for Your IoT Project - Frédéric Desbiens, Eclipse Foundation
MQTT, CoAP, DDS, OPC UA... IoT developers have many network protocols to choose from when starting an IoT project. But which one is the best for *your* specific use case? In this presentation, you will get an overview of the most widely supported IoT protocols and understand their pros and cons. You will also learn about applicable open source implementations supported on the Linux and Zephyr operating systems.

Full Stack Debugging: From CI to ISS - Alexey Brodkin, Synopsys
Sometimes you find yourself looking at something a tiny bit incorrect, like your CI machinery reports a couple of more failures than you expect (surely you want zero failures). So you decide to fix it. You try to reproduce it outside the CI and... everything just works. OK, then you know who's guilty, right? That simple. And you ask your DevOps people to go fix their scripts. But apparently nothing helps, tests still fail in CI. And one fine day you decide to scratch that itch for real and start a journey down the rabbit hole. In this talk we'll reconstruct one very real debugging session which started from Zephyr RTOS tests failing in Jenkins-based CI flow and ended deep in the guts of the instruction set simulator (ISS). One by one we'll be inspecting possible faulty components (Jenkins, Shell & Python scripts used for test execution, Zephyr RTOS tests themselves and finally the simulator) until we may explain all the peculiarities observed before.

Mix Edge and Electric Vehicles to Get a Shot at Sustainability - Diana Atanasova & Tsvetomir Stoyanov, VMware
Electric Grid Modernization involves comprehending renewable sources of energy, storage systems, actively monitoring power use, anticipating demand, and possibly shifting demand to smooth usage peaks. The last particularly helps to decarbonize the grid through avoiding the need to bring online dirty sources of energy to meet demand peaks. Electric Vehicle charging lends itself well to demand shifting. Perhaps you are at home and can delay charging for several hours or at work with enough charge to get back home, or just opportunisticly charging while shopping. Our solution leverages the open source project EdgeX Foundry to monitor and control one or more ChargePoint (CP) Charge stations. We invite you to explore our open source project Kinney, which provides Go and Python clients for CP's SOAP API and both a replay and full simulator (Covid-19 lockdown accelerated) We share alternative curtailment algorithms that take into consideration location, time of day, amount of vehicle charge, and charging patterns. Towards grid modernization the capturing contextual importance of various loads will help developing trade-off algorithms. Learn, experiment, drive sustainability!

ACRN Security: A Journey into Fuzzing and Hardening Edge Hypervisors - Mostafa Elsaid & Steffen Schulz, Intel
With the rise of data-centric IoT and Edge Compute, hypervisors have become a key component for real-time assurance, workload consolidation, and management. Unlike traditional cloud infrastructure, hypervisors at the Edge face an extended threat model with a broader set of threats and requirements (e.g. determinism, data privacy, etc..). As a result, ensuring the security and functional correctness of critical elements in the Trusted Computing Base (TCB) is crucial for the overall edge node security and dependability. Dynamic security validation methods like "Fuzzing" have been highly successful in uncovering novel bugs with runtime impact. However, as of now, there are no effective tools for covering the complex and diverse nature of components in the modern virtualization software stack. In this presentation, we discuss state-of-art fuzzing approaches that fit into the virtualized edge ecosystem. In addition, we share a set of Best Known Methods (BKMs) and techniques to execute a comprehensive fuzzing campaign for components scattered across different software layers; starting from the hypervisor, kernel service modules, and up to the Device Model (DM) in userspace.

LoRa/LoRaWAN in Zephyr - Manivannan Sadhasivam, Linaro
The Eclipse IoT Developer Survey 2019 showed that Zephyr had approximately 3% of the RTOS market share for IoT. And so the number should've increased by now. Zephyr is becoming the de facto Opensource RTOS for the IoT market due to its scalable and yet feature-rich nature. Zephyr already supports multiple SoC architectures and communication protocols. But for Zephyr to become an RTOS for Industrial and Smart city applications, it needs to support a communication technology that can transmit data at longer distances in a less congested spectrum. This is where LoRa (Long Range) communication technology by Semtech perfectly fits in. The basic LoRa support in Zephyr was added back in December 2019 and since then there has been a huge interest among the community to extend the support for it. More recently, the LoRaWAN support is also added to Zephyr. This will provide true networking support to Zephyr over LoRa. This talk will briefly go over the current LoRa/LoRaWAN support in Zephyr, the motivation, future plans, etc...

New Power Management Framework in Zephyr - Wentong Wu, Intel APAC R&D Ltd.
Zephyr will provide new interfaces and APIs for power management which are designed to be conveniently adapted to different SOCs and architectures. Another goal of the new design is to consume as little power as possible in a given system state and don’t waste energy when idle. The power management components are classified into five categories: pm policy, pm core, platform pm, device pm, device runtime pm. Every layer has been well considered and designed, many new technologies have been used and the implementation is ongoing, it will be ready in early September. In this presentation, Wentong Wu, the maintainer of Zephyr power management, will provide as much technical detail as possible and the benefit of the new power management framework. And finally, the future technical plans of Zephyr power management will be presented and discussed.
