Arm-based Microprocessors Need Live Kernel Patching

Arm-based Microprocessors Need Live Kernel Patching, arm chipset, linux penguin

Most IoT devices run on Arm-based processors. 71.8% of these processors use Linux as their operating system (OS). 

But the Internet of Things (IoT) can be a dangerous place, and cybersecurity attacks targeting IoT devices proliferate, begging the question: what can you do to protect your systems? Here’s an infographic that answers that:

So how does live-patching work?

Picture this: a vulnerability affecting the supported kernels is announced. A patch is prepared for that, as soon as technically possible. The patch, then, gets automatically downloaded and applied to the running kernel, without the need for any reboot. 

With live-patching, kernel updates are applied as quickly as possible, which minimizes the window of vulnerability for IoT devices.
