Countless devices are joining the Internet of Things (IoT) daily. It is a key requirement that the device architecture of the device itself is secure; above and beyond the mandatory connection privacy. Embedded devices also require a device security approach that can follow future security trends, changes, and threats throughout their entire product lifecycle. This session looks at reported cases of device vulnerability in the industry, available technology, and best practices for designing secure connected products. Based and built on the Digi ConnectCore for i.MX6UL connected SOM platform, and without the traditional burden of effort related to design and implementation.
