Canonical Releases Ubuntu Core 20 for IoT/Embedded Devices with Full Disk Encryption

Ubuntu Core 20 is a major release and comes two years after the previous version, Ubuntu Core 18.

Highlights of Ubuntu Core 20 include hardware-backed full disk encryption for x86 systems via TPM (Trusted Platform Module) integration, which works with exiting CA (Certificate Authority) for a more secure boot that prevents unauthorised software installation and guarantees confidentiality from physical attackers.

Due to Canonical’s 10-year low-cost security maintenance model, Core 18 still be supported for eight more years on business critical deployments
