Securing the Linux kernel in embedded systems is critically important, as these systems are widely used in various industries, ranging from IoT devices and industrial control systems to automotive and medical devices. Neglecting the security of the Linux kernel can have severe consequences, leading to potential breaches and exploits.

"Embedded systems are unique targets of attacks since they run Linux on multiple microcontrollers with varying degrees of computational capabilities."

Learn how to adapt the Linux kernel for embedded systems and the security implications of doing so in the article linked below.
