>> IOT DAY OSLO - FEASIBILITY OF SECURITY ON MICRO-CONTROLLERS
I have been preparing for this one for a while now - finally the time has
come to get out there!
Evothings is proud to be presenting at the
One day of Internet of Things
in Oslo, Norway on November 6th, 2014! It was only natural that we submitted
a session focused on our insights and experiences around the feasibility of
providing security on micro-controllers such as the
platform - there is an obvious void with a blatant lack of security and
solutions to assist developers due to the limited processing power and memory
on such devices.
IoT security has become a hot topic in the industry over the past
few months so our timing was perfect for the session submission and it
should get a lot of interest (hopefully) during the day. The synopsis
of the session we will be holding today is:
TOPIC: Is it possible to secure micro-controllers used within IoT?
With the introduction of micro controllers such as the Arduino, Raspberry
Pi and BeagleBone – it has become easy to connect sensors to gather
information and utilise network connections to build an IoT ecosystem.
Strong encryption schemes like RSA/AES/SHA and ecliptic curves cryptography
(ECC) have been difficult to introduce due to limited performance and
memory capabilities of the micro controllers used and using standard
libraries just isn’t feasible – we find that designated and optimised
software is the only feasible way forward.
Unfortunately; there is only a thirty minute time slot - I could talk about
this topic for hours given the opportunity. The great news is that Evothings
will also have a booth on the floor so you could visit us at any time to
talk about what we do and follow up on the presentation.
The presentation is now available (in advance) for download on
if you were unable to attend of are looking for a copy of the slides.
Due to time constraints the focus will be on actual results we
obtained and hopefully open up for a great debate and discussion.
At least I wont be late for the event today, awake early - jetlag
is at full force in this one!
