Starting today, Amazon FreeRTOS offers support for an over-the-air (OTA) update feature. You can now securely update your Amazon FreeRTOS devices remotely with feature enhancements or security patches. To get started, login to the AWS IoT Device Management console, provide a firmware image, select the devices to update, select a code signing method, and schedule the update.  

The Amazon FreeRTOS code-signing feature makes it easier to authenticate the signed image on the device, which ensures your code is not compromised during the update process. Amazon FreeRTOS makes deploying OTA updates to your device less memory intensive by communicating those updates over a single TLS connection, shared with other AWS IoT Core communications.
