A lot of progress has been made in infrastructure to secure edge nodes in the IoT and to secure communications between edge nodes and gateways, all of which is good and necessary to block manifest evil, but it’s never enough. Perfect security is and always will be an asymptotic goal, so there should always be room for new ideas. To a … Read More

The iris and even a person’s electrocardiogram (ECG) can be used as a secure biometric identifier.… Read More
Did you know that by 2020 90% of cars will be connected to Internet? Great, but today, there are already more than 100 car models affected with security flaws (Source: theguardian.com, 2015). That 320 apps are installed on average smartphone device? It would be a complete success, but 43% of Android devices allow installation of… Read More
The advent of security coprocessor that offloads the provisioning task from the main MCU or MPU is bringing new possibilities for the Internet of Things (IoT) product developers to secure the edge device at lower cost and power points regardless of the scale.
Hardware engineers often like to say that there is now such thing as software… Read More
If I grab 10 technologists and ask what are the most important issues surrounding the Internet of Things today, one of the popular answers will be “security.” If I then ask them what IoT security means, I probably get 10 different answers. Encryption. Transport protocols. Authentication. Keying. Firewalls. Secure boot. Over-the-air… Read More
