Security patches for 18.04 LTS since End of Life

Hi all,

Please could you clarify the position on Security patches for Linux for Tegra based on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS? There was previously a question in the forums of which the answer seemed to imply that Nvidia would continue to provide security patches for the foreseeable future. Could you clarify if that would only include patches for the kernel or would that also include packages, for example there are already vulnerabilities reported in 18.04 since EOL where a patch is now only available via Ubuntu ESM. The pricing for ESM is quite prohibitive for 100’s of devices and OTA upgrades of remote devices is slightly terrifying. Thanks for the clarification.

The security patches are only in Kernel and Nvidia components and do not include the patches from Ubuntu.
