Open source platform communication with MCTP

Main Room,

The Management Controller Transport Protocol (MCTP) defines a mostly-hardware-neutral way of messaging between components of an embedded platform. There has been a lot happening in MCTP support for Linux recently, as well as infrastructure and libraries for use in non-Linux embedded systems too.

This talk covers the current status of MCTP support in the upstream Linux kernel, what hardware transport options are available, plus other facilities useful for incorporating MCTP into an open source firmware stack.
