Part One: Introduce New Services Without the Risk

An Introduction to Playing Inside the Box Using the Legato® Application Framework

Adding new features or third-party apps to an IoT device can be risky, since new functions can make it harder to predict in-field performance, maintain security, and retain data privacy. Sandboxing is a technique, supported by the open source Legato development platform, that makes it easier and safer to design, test, and deploy new IoT functions – without risking the core application.

Upgrades, modifications, and new features are a fact of life in the IoT. Many IoT devices begin as relatively simple electronic systems that perform a fairly limited set of functions, but quickly evolve to take on new capabilities that support multiple applications. A first-generation device for vehicle tracking, for example, might be upgraded to support usage-based insurance, or the latest version of a gas meter might be configured with a payment app, to support new pay-as-you go and top-up services.
