Linux has become one of the most important software component to run civil infrastructure systems such as power plants, water distributions, traffic controls or healthcare systems. However, there are still gaps to fill regarding domain-specific requirements such as safety, reliability or real-time. At the same time, rapid advances in machine-to-machine connectivity are driving changes in industrial system architectures and
raise the importance of long-term support for security.

The Linux Foundation established "Civil Infrastructure Platform (CIP)" as a new collaborative project. CIP aims at developing a super long-term supported open source "base layer" of industrial grade software. This base layer consists of software building blocks that meet requirements of industrial and civil infrastructure systems. In this talk, we will explain technical details and focuses of this project.
