IoT Security Process Variation to the Rescue
by Tom Simon on 11-12-2018 at 12:00 pm

Unique device identities are at the core of all computer security systems. Just as important is that each unique identity cannot be copied, because once copied they can be used illegitimately. Unique device IDs are used to ensure that communications are directed to the correct device. And they also provide the ability to encrypt… Read More

Spoiler alert, the answer is none!

Let me take you back to the beginning to explain that answer.


For the sake of this discussion, I will reduce a complex IoT solution to three fundamental blocks:

  • IoT node
  • IoT Gateway
  • IoT Server

The IoT node is a sensor that converts analog, physical world context into digital data. The node has to haveRead More
