October 28, 2019 - October 30, 2019
LF Edge will be on-site at Open Source Summit/Embedded Linux Conference Europe on October 28-31 in Lyon, France with several speaking presentations.
On Monday, October 28:
At 11:30 am – 12:05 pm in the Tête d’Or 2 room, join LF Edge leaders for a panel discussion titled, “Innovators Assemble! The IoT Edge Computing League Shares the Endgame.” Malini Bhandaru, Senior Staff at VMware and Security expert; Balaji Ethirajulu, Senior Director of Product Management at Ericsson and LF Edge Outreach Committee Chair person; Erik Nordmark, Chief Architect at Zededa and Project EVE leader; and Trevor Conn, Technical Staff Engineer at Dell Technologies and Chair of EdgeX Foundry Core Working Group, will discuss edge use cases being addressed to satisfy the industry needs, collaboration between the LF Edge Projects and scope of each project and how to engage and contribute to each project. Add it to your schedule here.
At 3:15 – 3:50 pm in the Tête d’Or 2 room, Gavin Lu, R&D Director for VMware and LF Edge contributor and member, will give a talk titled, “Build Edge Native Applications Integrated with the Cloud.” This presentation is about the elaboration of edge native applications, how they are different from legacy applications and cloud native applications, and how to build edge native applications, well integrated with the clouds. The recommendation toolkit is relative to Linux, container, EdgeX Foundry, and a few other OSS projects. Add it to your schedule here.
On Wednesday, October 30:
At 11:30 am – 12:05 pm in the Forum 6 room, Jeroen Mackenbach, Lead Systems Engineer IoT & Embedded Compute and EdgeX Foundry contributor, will present a session titled, “An Overview of EdgeX Foundry and Where We Stand.” Attendees will learn more about EdgeX’s Edinburgh “production-ready” release, various success stories and use cases, and an overview of what the future of the project looks like. Add it to your schedule here.
At 12:20 – 12:55 pm in the Forum 6 room, Tiejun Chen, Staff Engineer and Technical Leader at VMware and contributor on the EdgeX Foundry Technical Steering Committee, is giving a presentation,”Integrate ROS into EdgeX – Startover of Edge Computing Systems.” In this session, Tiejun will discuss integrating ROS into EdgeX to build a unified edge system solution like 1: Architecture; 2: Support EdgeX with ROS device nodes; 3. Enable a basic machine learning framework with ROS library like opencv; 4: Over light weight preempt-rt Linux vessel; 5. vision of edge computing cluster. Add it to your schedule here.
At 3:15 – 3:50 pm in the Pasteur Auditorium, Malini Bhadaru, Senior Staff from VMware and Chair of the EdgeX Foundry Security Working Group, will lead a session titled, “Building an Open Source Framework for the Edge.” She’ll discuss edge computing, the new LF Edge umbrella and how each project makes up the LF Edge stack – Akraino, EdgeX Foundry, Home Edge, Project EVE and the Open Glossary of Edge Computing. Add it to your schedule here.
At 4:15 – 4:50 pm in the Pasteur Auditorium, Trevor Conn, Technical Staff Engineer at Dell Technologies and Chair of EdgeX Foundry Core Working Group, will present a session titled, “Securely Store IoT Edge Data with IPFS and Distributed Ledger.” In this session, attendees will learn how to secure and track data entering the IoT edge using distributed ledger technology. Specifically, see how data brought into the EdgeX Foundry can be signed and stored on an IPFS distributed file system and then an immutable pointer to the data can be placed into a distributed ledger along with any necessary identity/wallet information. This solution helps minimize storage needs of the ledger, provides an extra layer of security to your IoT solutions and can pave the way for eventual data monetization via querying/reporting capabilities.

At 4:15 – 4:50 pm in the Lumiere Auditortium, Malini Bhadaru, Senior Staff from VMware and Chair of the EdgeX Foundry Security Working Group, and Tingyu Zeng, Senior Principal Engineer at Dell/RSA and Chair of the EdgeX Foundry Security Working Group, will present a session titled, “How Secure is your Edge with EdgeX?” In this session, attendees will learn about EdgeX Foundry, its threat model and the security best practices it adopts, such as code scans for known CVEs and security anti-patterns, use of Kong for secure gateway/proxy, use of Vault for secure storage of keys and authentication credentials, audit logging, and deployment prescriptions to limit privilege escalation and stolen media type attacks, and incidence response. Lastly, we touch on security roadmap items such as PKI for authenticated secure inter-service interaction and Trusted Platform Modules for secure boot and encrypted storage. Add it to your schedule here.
At 5:05 – 5:40 pm in the Amphitheatre, Mazin Gilbert, Vice President of Advanced Technology and Systems at AT&T Labs, will present a talk titled, “ONAP, Acumos and Akraino for the Autonomous Network.” In this presentation, attendees will hear more about the proven power of open source with AT&T’s active participation in open source projects like Acumos AI, ONAP and Akraino Edge Stack and the vision of Network AI.
