BoFs: Applying Linux to the Social Infrastructure Systems - Noriaki Fukuyasu, Linux Foundation
Linux has become one of the most important software to run the social infrastructure systems (SI system) such as power plants, water distribution and traffic control. From computer system viewpoint, the controllers require a very high level of real-time performance, reliability and security to avoid serious failure. To overcome the issues to apply Linux on SI systems, as the first step, we need to gather the actual requirements. Past few months, some companies who are interested in this area actually got together and discussed to put those requirements together. The requirements arose, for example, include the recovery time for redundant systems (less than a few milliseconds) etc.
In this talk, I would like to share the current status of this requirement discussion and our future collaboration plan. 
Please join us to improve Linux together and make the world better place!

BoFs: Cryptography and Randomness - Jesse Zbikowski
Cryptography and Randomness (Jesse Zbikowski, Open Automation) - A forum to discuss the crypto capabilities of the Linux kernel, including movitivation and use of the new getrandom(2) system call, and hardware (true physical) random number generation. Also of interest may be: userspace crypto libraries such as NaCl; crypto implementations in newer languages like Mozilla's Rust; design philosophy for crypto libraries and best practices; and verified software builds.

BoFs: Dronecode Project - Andrew Tridgell & Lorenz Meier
The Dronecode Project is an open source, collaborative project that brings together existing and future open source drone projects under a nonprofit structure governed by The Linux Foundation. The result will be a common, shared open source platform for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). Join Andrew "Tridge" Tridgell and Lorenz Meier as they discuss the current state of the project and plans for the next 12 months.

BoFs: Kernel Wish List - John Stultz
For the last few years, its become a tradition for Linux desktop developers to present a Linux kernel wishlist, at the Linux Plumbers conference, which basically summarizes some of the features those developers see as needed.  See examples here:

See I hope to present a similar wish list this year at Plumbers, but instead focusing on the needs of Android/mobile use cases.

Thus this informal BoF will try to pull together a number of Android builders, OEMs, and component vendors to collect feature requests, and find pain points with getting device support working with the Linux kernel. What things are folks having trouble getting upstream? What infrastructure is missing to more easily support what you're doing? Are there new hardware classes that are being ignored upstream? So come with your issues and lets add them to the list!"
