Canonical Livepatch Service

Managed live kernel patching

Personal users of Ubuntu can subscribe three machines (laptop, server or cloud) free of charge. Canonical's customers are entitled to use the service on every system for which a product including Livepatch is active, including those covered by an Ubuntu Advantage enterprise support agreement (Essential, Standard, or Advanced).

The service covers standard Canonical 64-bit x86 kernels on 14.04 LTS, 16.04 LTS, and 18.04 LTS. It dynamically monitors success rates, enabling us to reduce the risk of live kernel fixes by delivering them to a small initial group and then widening the footprint dynamically based on success.

If you need Ubuntu Advantage on more machines, please visit our shop.

By getting your token you are agreeing to the Livepatch Terms of Service.
