Building Container Images with OpenEmbedded and the Yocto Project

The proliferation of container virtualization in the server world and increasingly as an option for application sandbox in embedded systems has lead to concerns about the reproducibility and security of the contents of container images. This presentation discusses what OpenEmbedded and the Yocto Project bring to the table for building custom container images in the areas of container size, reproducibility, security vulnerability fixing, and license compliance. The available options for building container images with OpenEmbedded are discussed with examples.
