Simplifying IoT Security - TechDays

22 Nov 2017 - 01 Feb 2018

Pan-European, Multiple Dates

Supplier partners: Infineon, Maxim Integrated, NXP, IDEMIA, STMicroelectronics, Trusted Objects

Bridging the gap between low-power embedded and IT security

In the past 15 years, enterprise Information Technology (IT) architects have successfully upgraded their security schemes from an all-wired world based on desktop computers to all-wireless-mobile laptop and smartphone fleets without compromising on security and even improving it. A similar evolution is happening now:  beyond laptops and smartphones, industries are looking to connect many devices, machines and objects to application servers through private and public networks.

Here is a non-exhaustive list of questions we will address during this free seminar:

  • What kind of security does an IT director expect from a device connecting to his servers?
  • What is the technology under the “S” in HTTPS or MQTTS?
  • What is an X.509 certificate?
  • How to simply protect my brand against low-cost competition?
  • How to simply detect misusage of a product so as not to guarantee blindly?
  • What is the Trusted Computer Group?
  • Can we perform the same level of security on non-IP Local Area Networks like we do on the Internet?
  • What is end-to-end security?
  • What is a secure element?
  • What is a key ceremony?
  • Are there solutions to properly secure devices operating on SIGFOX and LoRa Alliance networks?
  • What is a Key Management Service?
