The ability to execute software updates over the air on a microcontroller-based device ensures a cost-effective deployment with full lifecycle support. The presentation starts with the design considerations for the secure bootloader included in the Apache Mynewt OS. It then walks the audience through the operational flow of the bootloader, emphasizing detection and recovery mechanisms for erroneous or inconsistent states. Next, security features such as checking the authenticity and integrity of the firmware images, tools to digitally sign images, secure storage options etc. will be discussed. Finally, the specific implementation details to address the challenges of managing upgrades on constrained devices will be presented.
