The promise of an Internet of Things has become the reality the connected product. Today there are more things connected to the Internet than there are people on the planet. Awesome, right? In a word, no. We have billions of Internet-connected things, but very few of them connect to each other and even fewer connect to us. That’s a problem. We all want something more. We want an Internet of Everything where every thing is connected and every thing connects. Where things that were silent have a voice. Where APIs compete with dials and buttons for control. Where people compose amazing experiences from the world of things around them. Opportunity is knocking, the question is: Are we ready to open the door and let it in? If we do, we will create unprecedented social and economic opportunity for people, businesses, and communities. In this panel, three dynamic business leaders will discuss the impact of connecting everything on their business and business models, the real challenge of building connected products, and their thoughts on the reality of the open source solution.

Rocket and the App Container Spec - Brandon Philips, CoreOS
Rocket is a simple daemon-free tool that enables users to run containerized apps on their systems free of host dependencies. Containers running under rocket execute like regular processes and can be managed using existing process management tools like upstart,
systemd, runit, and etc.

Rocket is also an implementation of the "App Container Spec" which defines how to define and build containerized applications based on tooling like tar and pgp. And then host these files easily using standard protocols like HTTP. The goal of the spec is to enable independent and creative implementations of container runtimes and build tools.

Both of these projects are open source and part of a young growing community. Come learn how they work and how you can get involved.

Unified Device Properties Interface for ACPI and Device Trees - Rafael J. Wysocki, Intel
ACPI was introduced when hardware compatibility with the IBM PC became insufficient to maintain the PC ecosystem. It allowed a single binary OS image to run on various platforms using the same CPU architecture, but not exactly hardware-compatible with one another. Today, Device Trees are used to address the same platform fragmentation problem in the ARM ecosystem in a similar way. Of course, there are differences between DT and ACPI. For instance, DT allows arbitrary data to be passed to the OS as device properties, but ACPI could not do that in a convenient way until recently. With that limitation addressed in ACPI a need has arisen for a unified interface to retrieve hardware properties information from the platform firmware, so the same device driver using it can work equally well on systems with ACPI or DT. I will discuss work toward that goal in Linux and the resulting API.

When Conformity is Innovative: Fixing the Supply Chain with the OpenChain Initiative - David Marr, Qualcomm Technologies; Jilayne Lovejoy, ARM; Karen Copenhaver, The Linux Foundation
FOSS exists in all levels of a supply chain, from the first software developer creating software all the way to the final packaged product that is sold to end users. However in the context of a commercial supply chain the current FOSS ecosystem is broken. If a supply chain can be compared to a stream or a river, as software flows down the supply chain – i.e., when software is delivered from one company to the next -- each successive downstream company is redoing portions of the compliance work already done (or what should have been done) by the upstream company. This is all done at unnecessary cost, inefficiency and often delays time-to-market. The OpenChain working group seeks to collaborate on a proposed process conformance standard that would allow companies in a supply chain to mutually assist each other to save time and cost – all while reducing legal risk overall.

The GNU C Library Update! - Roland McGrath, Google
The GNU C Library (GLIBC) is a part of almost all Linux systems deployed today. The library continues to be a key piece of the low-level interface between user applications and the Linux kernel, and as such an important enabler for new hardware, kernel features, and new system-wide APIs.

This talk will cover the work by the community to add support for new features including Intel MPX support, lock elision for s390 and s390x, optimizations for ARMv7 and ARMv8, and file description locking support for the same Linux kernel feature.

This talk is but a small slice of the problems being tackled by the community. The goal is to walk away with a broad view of the ongoing work and direction of the library.

How to Get Your Favorite Kernel Feature Into a Linux Distribution - Christoph Lameter
We often want some special features or a fix to be available in a standard Linux Kernel. This talk describes what was done to get certain features into the Redhat 7 release. Doing so involved work at multiple levels (linux kernel, subsystem specialists, Red Hat developers, and many personal relationships) and became quite a complex undertaking since there were also out of tree third party kernel modules involved. At the end we ended up with almost everything we needed in the distro.

The process is a bit demanding because it requires both the skill to communicate in various contexts as well as technological expertise for the design and understanding of what could address one's need. Compromises occurr on the way but at the end one wants to have their bases covered.

Swimming Upstream - Dave Neary, Red Hat
One of the stated goals of the OPNFV project is to "work with upstream projects to coordinate continuous integration and testing while filling development gaps". To do this successfully, it is important to have a framework for approaching projects you have not worked with before. Each project has its own culture, norms and participants, and effecting change in a project means more than turning up with a laundry list of feature requests.
This session will provide you with that framework. The target audience is engineers interested in improving projects like Openstack, OpenDaylight and OpenvSwitch in the context of the OPNFV project. The subject matter will not be technical, but will assume a solid background in software development methodologies. The syllabus will cover some or all of:
  • Framing: How to think about interactions when you are a stranger in a strange land
  • Navigating the Unknown: Identifying infrastructure, community processes and key contributors in projects.
  • Shortening the feedback loop: How to maximize your chances of getting code and ideas accepted upstream
  • Lots of examples and case studies identifying best and worst practices
By the end of the session, attendees will have a clearer understanding of what is involved in developing features across multiple projects, in a way in which that code will be accepted upstream and integrated into a stable release.

A Decade of Linux Application Container Operations at Google: What We Have Learned and How It Applies To You - Craig McLuckie, Google
We have been running production versions of container technologies at Google for the last decade. Today everything inside Google runs in containers, from Search to GMail. Linux application containers have changed the way Google runs, but did introduced some unique new operating challenges. During this session we will relate some of our experiences, and talk about how Kubernetes our Open Source container manager is solves real world problems in the container management and orchestration space that customers either face today, or will soon face as they build complex container based systems.

IOMMU Event Tracing - What It Is and How it Can Help Your Distro? - Shuah Khan, Samsung
IOMMU event tracing feature enables reporting IOMMU events as they happen during boot-time and run-time. As an example, when a device is detached from host and assigned to a virtual machine, the device gets moved from host domain to vm domain.

Enabling IOMMU event tracing will provide useful information about the devices that are using IOMMU as well as as the changes that occur in device assignments. In this talk, we will discuss the IOMMU event tracing feature and how to enable and use it trace events during boot-time and run-time. The discussion will be focused on using the IOMMU tracing feature to get insight into what's happening on a system in virtualized environments as devices get assigned from host to virtual machines and vice versa. Linux kernel developers and users can learn about a feature that can aid during development, maintenance, and support of systems with IOMMU.

Open Standards - Larry Rosen
I contend that software standards specifications are source code. They are intended so that human beings and computers can compile them into workable implementations. They have no other purpose. The notion that software specifications deserve some special protection is an antiquated ANSI orthodoxy inherited from the time when railroad trains and the railroad barons of the day required standard gauge tracks in order to enable commerce. Now what is required for commerce is very different: We require the freedom to create derivative works. This is a fundamental principle of the Open Source Definition and part of the philosophy of the Free Software Foundation. It is the basis for Linux. I personally recommend either the Creative Commons CC0 or CC-BY licenses for software specifications and will spend part of my talk explaining why.

Building Distributed Systems with CoreOS - Kelsey Hightower, CoreOS
Building distributed systems is hard, but with the right components just about anyone can get started. At the heart of any distributed system is the underlying infrastructure, which often includes a collection of servers, a central configuration and lock service, and a scheduler to manage your workloads.

CoreOS provides all of these components starting with the base OS, CoreOS Linux; a minimal OS optimized for running Linux containers. Next is the central key value store, etcd, which provides shared configuration, service discovery, and a cluster wide lock service built on top of the Raft consensus algorithm for high-availability. Finally, fleet is a distributed init system that ties it all together and provides low level workload scheduling. fleet is often used to install higher level workload distribution systems such as Mesos or Kubernetes.

All of these projects are open source and part of growing community. Come learn how they work and how you can get involved.

Linux Kernel Testing BoFs - Tsugikazu Shibata, NEC & Hisao Munakata, Renesas
Linux is now using broad range of industries not just internet servers but also cloud, supercomputer, embedded, automotive and so on. So, sometimes, companies are trying to build kernel by themselves using long term stable kernel such as LTSI. (or other case, just upstream kernel) with adding their own patches fixing their problems.

In any case, using Linux for production must be tested before start its service or shipment. This BoFs is intended to discuss about Linux Kernel testing for such situation. Sharing test among the companies is one of major topic and the part where we will be able to test (mm, fs, net, driver). Also, test infrastructure and test methods are another interesting topic and how we solve the problem when we found the kernel problem will be discussed.

Lessons Learned from the Xen Project Security Response Process - George Dunlap, Citrix
Recent vulnerabilities like Heartbleed and Shellshock have brought attention to the place security of open-source software plays in our critical infrastructure. When vulnerabilities are discovered, project response can have a major impact on how much risk end users are exposed to.

The Xen Project is a critical component in the cloud, and as a result we have been developing our security response process for several years. This talk will explore the principles behind our process, as well as some of the pain points we have experienced along the way, to help other projects and users understand the potential issues involved. It will include the various approaches, from full disclosure to pre-disclosure (and who to pre-disclose to); "public" and "private" vulnerabilities, community trust issues, and a number of issues we wouldn't have expected.

The Secrets to Open Source Innovation - John Mark Walker, Red Hat
Open Source is a phenomenon made possible by the will of the customer and end user, leading to a world where end users collaborate directly with developers. This was not by accident: end users were able to collaborate in this way because of the establishment of the four freedoms and the resulting managed ecosystem of open source platforms. The resulting changes in development process led to open source becoming the dominant way to innovate in software. Ultimately, open source is a victory of process, governance and agility, which are at least as important as the code. But what lessons can we take away from open source domination, especially as we advance forward with new technologies? If the four freedoms drove open source development, will they play the same role in the advancement of cloud computing? 

In this talk, we will look at examples from the cloud computing world and other areas of science. Is the secret to innovation the creation of sound processes and good governance?

LXD: The Next Big Step For The LXC Project - Stéphane Graber, Canonical
The LXD container "hypervisor" project announced during the OpenStack Summit in November last year is the next big step for the LXC project.

It's a chance to rethink the LXC user experience to provide something which works both for a developer working on their laptop and for a system administrator managing hundreds of hosts and thousands of containers.

In a nutshell LXD is a daemon, sitting on top of LXC's API and exposing a REST API to manage LXC containers locally or over the network.

That simple and clean API can then be used by any tool wanting to interact with those LXD hosts. Two clients come with LXD itself, a command line tool and an OpenStack Nova plugin. The former is meant for the regular LXC user and for people who do not wish to deploy or need a full OpenStack setup. The latter is designed to seamlessly provide container support in your existing OpenStack infrastructure, letting you easily mix virtual machines and containers.

This talk will be a quick introduction to the ideas behind LXD (security, simplicity, extensibility and scalability), followed by a demo of what's working today (after 3 months of work), the current roadmap and then answer any question the audience might have.

The Physics of Software Licensing - Mark Gisi, Wind River Systems
The physical reality on how software is constructed today (e.g., combining many components from various different sources) logically implies that the licensing of modern day software is best represented as a composite set of licenses. That is a change from the traditional single license designation. Composite licensing is a byproduct of wide spread source code sharing, where sharing is the underling force behind the open source movement’s success. A project’s licensing composition evolves as it borrows (copies) source code from other projects with different licensing. We use a simple molecular physics analogy (e.g., atom/molecule construction) to represent how software is constructed and then use that information to determine software licensing obligations of a program (or library) derived from different sources under different licenses.

Beyond Golden Containers: Complementing Docker with Puppet - David Lutterkort, Puppet Labs
Docker offers an exciting new way to use containers for delivering and managing applications. Combining Docker with a configuration management system like Puppet provides much greater control over containers, both at buildtime and at runtime: at buildtime, Puppet's fine-grained resources such as file, cron, and user make it easy to control an image build in great detail; Puppet's facilities for weaving the description of a system together from different concerns make it easy to express similarities and differences between a fleet of container images concisely and understandably. At runtime, Puppet can be used to detect configuration drift and remediate such drift. When image building and deployment is performed by different parties, Puppet manifests also document the details of a container's setup and expose the knobs that can be used to control the payload of a container.

Using ftrace (and Other Tools) for Performance Analysis - Steven Rostedt, Red Hat
Ever wonder why a tool you used suddenly dropped in performance when upgrading to a new kernel? This can be very difficult to find the exact cause of such a problem. But luckily there are several tools to use to help one out. The first tool to try is perf. perf is well documented as a performance analysis tool. But sometimes that doesn't give you enough information to find the cause of the degradation. Ftrace can give you a different view of the system. This talk will show how to use ftrace and other little known tools of the kernel to find out why a new kernel version has suddenly introduced performance issues to the tools running on top of it.

Getting Work Done in a Flat World - Paul Holland, HP
The business playing field is being leveled around the world while global complexity is increasing, and the people and companies that are successful are the ones who can collaborate. Innovation is often deeply collaborative and networked, and collaborative development, particularly in open source, is disrupting how software is being built. Companies must understand that accumulating knowledge becomes less valuable than leveraging the flow of knowledge to generate new knowledge – an area central to communities.

This presentation will discuss key points about the world being increasingly “flat”, how that relates to communities and networks, and how collaborative companies actively manage both their internal and external R&D successfully.

Hacking Trademarks For Free Culture - Stephen LaPorte, Wikimedia Foundation & Yana Welinder, Wikimedia Foundation
Collaborative communities create popular work with widely recognized brands, such as Linux, Wikipedia, and Firefox. Trademark law can provide protections to members of these communities and the users of their products so that they can rely on the brands to identify the original projects. But trademark law also requires centralized quality control and various formalities that are inconsistent with the decentralized nature of collaborative communities. This talk explores how to reconcile trademark law with free culture values and how collaborative communities have “hacked” trademark law. We will also discuss CollabMark, a project to make trademarks more accessible for free culture and open source communities.

The Linux perf probe & trace tools - Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo, Red Hat
The Linux perf tools continuously grows in scope as an observability toolchest, with more features being added. This talk showcases the 'probe' and 'trace' tools: one allows adding dynamic probes in arbitrary points in the kernel and in userspace libs and programs, collecting global and local variables and callchains, that can then be used in conjunction with other perf tools: record, top, trace, script. The later, trace, started as a super strace, one that allows stracing not just threads, but other targets such as the whole system, sets of CPUs. It also has a lower overhead as it doesn't use the ptrace syscall. Support for tracing page faults and other events and collecting callchains is planned and may be ready by Collab'15. An example of integration using 'probe', capturing syscall arguments for pretty printing, showcasing 'candidate tracepoints' will also be presented.

CPU Performance management on ARM64 Servers - Ashwin Chaugule, QuIC
The ARM64 linux ecosystem for servers is a fairly new and exciting place to be in. If there is one thing to be learned from the ARM32 world, it is the need to avoid fragmentation in various implementations of the ARM64 code. This presentation goes over some ideas and plans to help with this in the CPUfreq subsystem for ARM64 server drivers. More specifically, we will go over the proposal from the ACPI v5.1 specification to control CPU performance using the methods called CPPC (Collaborative Processor Performance Controls). With a standardized specification which is generic enough to express platform specific details, we aim to unify CPUfreq drivers in the ARM64 server space. The presentation will cover the concepts behind CPPC, its advantages and how to apply it to the Linux kernel today and ideas to exploit other CPPC capabilities in the future.

How Corporations Can Maximize Effectiveness of Developers Contributing to Free Software - Stefano Maffulli, OpenStack
OpenStack is a project that in a fairly short amount of time has attracted in its ecosystem most of IT giants, becoming one of the largest collaborative software development efforts ever seen. From inside, it is quite visible that few companies are organized to allow collaboration across corporate borders. More often instead, companies have policies that actively prevent collaboration to happen. Despite the fact that free software has become ubiquitous, organizations have learned how to deal with licensing issues and distributed software engineering to some extent, but the day-to-day collaborative development is still troublesome. In this talk we'll explore how collaboration works in OpenStack and how companies contribute to the project, what drives their motivations. There will also be time to see examples of how development teams are setup and general tips for corporations.

Security in the IoT World - Ned Smith, Intel
The emerging Internet of Things presents a complex and challenging environment from a security perspective. This is due in part to the large number of highly-constrained, connected devices, being used in roles where a successful attack can have immediate real-world ramifications. To address these challenges, the Open Interconnect Consortium is developing a scalable, interoperable security standard, which provides maximum assurance for the capabilities of a given device.

This talk will focus on the near-term roadmap for OIC security: interfaces, protocols, and objects. It will also provide a conceptual explanation of OIC resource model, bootstrap, provisioning and lifecycle.

How Linux can Adapt to the New Security Requirements - Carl Hewitt, iRobust
Cyberspace has become an instrument of universal mass surveillance and intrusion threatening everyone's creativity and freedom of expression. Intelligence services gobble up almost all the world's digital communications traffic and can break into almost any cell phone, personal computer, and datacenter to steal information, thereby causing the dangerous development that the most powerful nations are intensely preparing for pre-emptive massive cyberwar.

The massive security problem with cyberspace can be fixed by creating secure endpoints with universal use of public key cryptography. Hardware (that can be verified by independent parties to operate exactly according to formal specifications) has been developed that can prevent mass intrusions. Linux must adapt to this new hardware.
