    The emerging network connected world uses advanced digital and connected technologies to enable higher degree of automation and optimization in everyday operations. Smart, connected systems have intelligent sensors, data-aggregators, gateways, cloud servers and services, and involve sending and receiving large amounts of data over the network. However, the sheer number of devices, businesses and users becoming connected not only broadens the surface area to attackers but also makes it very lucrative for attackers of various categories (amateurs, organized attackers) and motivations (financial, criminal or political) to attack the system.

    The presentation will cover multiple aspects of security to be considered when designing a network connected product or platform. It will touch upon impact and consequences of potential attacks from the perspective of the different stakeholders and present common security threats, local and remote, to the security assets handled by these connected embedded systems. Next, the various security enablers to be considered in connected embedded devices to architect different security solutions needed by the application will be presented. These security measures will go beyond AES encryption and shall not only aim at mitigating security risks in the system but also at enabling resilience in case of severe incidents (malicious or unintentional).

    Takeaway

    Presentation will cover security threats and its impact to stakeholders of the connected systems, and further focus on increasing security of connected embedded systems. Attendees will gain knowledge of various security enablers to look for in connected devices and its need to architect the right security solutions for their products.
