    Creating IoT Security from Silicon To Software
    Published. September 11, 2018

    Attackers often take advantage of the complexity that comes with balancing greater end-user convenience with traditional security. Behind that cool and responsive interface of an IoT device is millions of lines of code and superfast processing. The weakest link is something basic — a faulty implementation of a protocol, or a lack of a trusted security zone on a chip. Exploitation, in either case, requires very little skill. Thus, a lot of the attacks today are carried out not by criminals with...
