Employs an in-depth security development lifecycle: security validation, fuzz and penetration testing, frequent code reviews, static code analysis, threat modeling and reviews to prevent backdoors in the code.
Includes CNA with Product Security Incident Response Team (PSIRT) response team.
The project’s governance includes the formation of a security working group and a delegated security maintainer.
The governance and its members have a responsibility to ensure that all aspects of the code are developed securely.
Level 1 certification in the Platform Security Architecture (PSA) certification scheme.
Functional safety coming soon
Available through the Apache 2.0 open source license.
Free to use in commercial and non-commercial solutions.
Hosted as a collaborative project with the Linux Foundation, the project is neutrally governed and employs a lightweight governance and development model.
From professional makers to large industrial and commercial vendors, the Zephyr Project strives to deliver a universally adoptable solution for the Internet of Things.
Long term support (LTS) with security updates
Certification-ready with Auditable
Full-featured and power optimal: fully preemptible tickless kernel
Advanced memory management: Userspace support
Multi-processor support: SMP and AMP
Build for your architecture: Both 32 and 64-bit supported
Modular and Scalable
the Zephyr Project provides developers with feature-rich software optimized for memory constrained devices
Runs on systems as small as 8 kB of memory but scales up to systems with megabytes or even gigabytes of memory” (we now have 64-bit support)
Developers can use their tool suite of choice by supporting custom toolchains and compiler optimizations
Manage multi-repo configurations with West where it is possible to have cross-repo version control and build inclusion of entire independent project repos, including your own
Powerful Configuration Tools
Kconfig and Device Tree are part of the Zephyr platform
RTOS can be built as-is, with default configuration, or as a tailored solution by enabling/disabling features using Kconfig
Build applications to target different boards, and even architectures via Device Tree.
Optimized for low-powered, small memory footprint devices
