How to Make Smart Cities Stay Smart with Open Source Projects - Yoshitake Kobayashi, Toshiba
Power plants, radar systems, traffic lights, communications and weather systems have been part of everyday life for decades, which have made security and longevity paramount. Currently, these systems are built from scratch, with little re-use of existing software building blocks. This, in turn, drains resources and leads to fragmentation and duplication of effort. This is where open source comes in. The Civil Infrastructure Platform works with other open source projects to develop a super long-term supported (SLTS) open source "base layer" of industrial grade software that enables the implementation of building blocks in civil infrastructure projects. This session will feature how open source software powers smart cities, an overview of CIP activities and its collaborative efforts with other OS projects such as Debian, the ELISA Project and EdgeX Foundry.

Hyperledger Fabric 101: Permissioned Blockchain Platforms - Swetha Repakula & Morgan Bauer, IBM
When one thinks of blockchain, the technologies that come to mind are Bitcoin, and Ethereum. Much of the knowledge has been focused on public networks, and less is known about the permissioned blockchain platforms out there like Hyperledger Fabric. Fabric is an open source blockchain platform that has been designed for corporate use cases. Morgan and Swetha will go through the architecture of Hyperledger Fabric detailing the transaction work flow, consensus mechanism and smart contract capabilities. Attendees will leave with knowledge about the Hyperledger Consortium as well as details into the Fabric platform.

MinBFT, Hyperledger Lab - Open Source Project to Develop Efficient Consensus Protocol - Yuta Namiki, NEC Corporation
Blockchain technologies are attracting a lot of attention from various communities. A consensus protocol is one of key parts; it is a process to make an agreement on a value among distributed nodes.

In this presentation, Yuta Namiki introduces MinBFT, an open source project to implement an efficient consensus protocol achieving Byzantine fault tolerance. Even this project is under Hyperledger Labs, it is designed to be utilized by not only a blockchain system but also various kinds of distributed system. MinBFT leverages hardware-based trusted execution environments (TEEs), such as Intel SGX to make the protocol efficient and scalable. He shares technical brief of the protocol, design of the implementation, how this implementation can be utilized by applications, current status of the project, and feature roadmap of the project in this session.

Secure Container in IoT Segment: Extend KATA to ACRN IoT Hypervisor - Yu Wang & Jason Chen, Intel
Today’s connected devices are increasingly expected to support a range of hardware resources, operating systems, and software tools/applications. Workload consolidation, resource isolation and safety become hot topics now, container technology should be an answer. KATA Container is a security enhanced container by leveraging Virtual Machines (VMs) technology, that feels and performs like containers, but provides the workload isolation and security advantages of VMs. Originally KATA is designed for data center usage, so there’re gaps and challenges to meet specific IoT segment requirements, for example, real time, functional safety and embedded I/O mediator requirements. ACRN™ is a flexible, lightweight hypervisor, built for real-time and safety-criticality usages. In this session, Yu/Jason will introduce how to extend KATA Container to ACRN IoT hypervisor to for embedded system usages.

Introduction to JanusGraph Database - Jason Plurad, IBM
JanusGraph is a scalable graph database that is optimized to store and query graphs with billions of vertices and edges distributed across a multi-machine cluster. We'll share several uses cases from IBM products that take advantage of a graph database to highlight the strengths that graph provides over relational and other NoSQL alternatives. We'll discuss the JanusGraph architecture which gives developers the flexibility to leverage their knowledge and operational skills from other storage backends. We'll cover how open source developers from the community united to establish JanusGraph at the Linux Foundation, and then discuss JanusGraph project directions and opportunities to build out the open source graph ecosystem.

Building an Open Autonomous Data Platform - Xing Yang, Futurewei
OpenSDS is an open source project under Linux Foundation. It aims at addressing storage integration challenges in cloud native environments. Its vision is to connect siloed data solutions to build a self governed and intelligent data platform.

In this session Xing will highlight the new features added in the Capri release. These include an object lifecycle policy engine that automatically migrates data from one cloud to another or across different storage tiers within the same cloud, an orchestration engine that automates migration across homogeneous and heterogeneous storage systems, the ability to provide file share support for Kubernetes, OpenStack, and other northbound ecosystems, and a common storage metrics model to collect data from heterogeneous storage systems, train the data to find the best model, and run model to detect anomalous data points.
