There are two methods for improving IoT device security: secure partitioning and secure coding. The latter seems to have gained favor, not only for cloud software, but also for IoT device firmware. This may be because there has not been an effective firmware partitioning solution for microcontroller-based devices using memory protection units (MPUs). We are … Continue reading Isolated Partitioning of Firmware Improves IoT Device Security

Such third-party software may be carefully designed, documented, and commented, but it remains a mystery to your team because no one has time … Continue reading What’s In Your SOUP?
