In mission critical systems unscheduled downtimes must be avoided, but sometimes critical flaws in the kernel must be plugged as soon as possible.

Live patch is a way of changing the kernel internals without rebooting the system by redirecting the code execution.

The main motivation behind elivepatch is to provide an open source live patch build service, that works with any distributions, also in cases where distributions have no unified kernel across the user base (everybody has different GCC versions, different configs, etc) like for example with Gentoo.
Elivepatch is an open source service and is currently looking for users and feedback. The service is based on kpatch-build.

I will show the current progress on build reproducibility, security, and portability. I will also talk about what is still needed to be done.
