The Linux Foundation has announced the Civil Infrastructure Platform,
an open source framework that will provide the software foundation
needed to deliver essential services for civil infrastructure and economic
development on a global scale.
” Civil infrastructure systems
deliver critical services such as electric power, oil and gas, water,
health care, communications, transportation and more. “The Civil
Infrastructure Platform will aim to work upstream with the Linux
kernel and other open source projects to establish a “base layer” of
industrial-grade software. This base layer will enable the use of software
building blocks that meet safety, security, reliability and other
requirements that are critical to industrial and civil infrastructure
