When you power on your computer, there’s a lot more going on than you might think. One of the most important elements involved is the embedded controller (EC). This is what is responsible for providing abstractions for the battery, charging system, keyboard, touchpad, suspend/resume, and thermal control, among others. These controllers are typically proprietary and usually run proprietary firmware.

The dropbear suite provides both an ssh server and a client application (dbclient), and represents a light alternative to OpenSSH. Since it has a small footprint and uses system resources very well, it is generally used on embed devices, with limited memory and processing power (e.g routers or embed devices), where optimization is a key factor. It provides a lot features, like, for example, X11 forwarding, and it is fully compatible with the OpenSSH public key authentication. In this tutorial we will see how to install it and configure it on Linux.

Linux kernel headers are the unstable, constantly-changing, internal API of the kernel. This includes internal kernel structures (for example,
task_struct) as well as helper macros and functions. Unlike the UAPI headers used to build userspace programs that are stable and backward-compatible, the internal kernel headers can change at any time and any release.
The kernel this. The kernel that. People
often refer to one operating system's kernel or another without
truly knowing what it does or how it works or what it takes to make
one. What does it take to write a custom (and non-Linux) kernel?
