Seeking Senior C/C++ Developer

Hi! We are currently seeking an additional senior C/C++ developer for our team. Ideally, our best candidates will have 5+ years of experience coding C/C++. Experience at the systems level, working with networking protocols, working with cryptography, and an affinity for open source are useful but not necessary. This is a position where you will primarily work at home, with occasional travel to team meetings, trade events, and customers. With the right skill set, we are open to you working anywhere, but we prefer those who reside in Montana, Seattle, and Portland, because we already have clusters of people working in those locations.

If you are interested, please email your resume to larry@wolfssl.com.

Using wolfSSL to Secure Thermostats

As a lightweight, embedded SSL library, wolfSSL has been used to secure many smart home devices such as lighting, garage doors, washers and dryers, thermostats, as well as a variety of other appliances. Security may not be the first thought when developing a smart home device, but there remains the risk of an attacker gaining access to a wirelessly connected thermostat that has complete control of a home’s heating and cooling system. This could be detrimental to the utility bill, plumbing, and even pets left in the house susceptible to extreme temperatures. Imagine going on vacation during frigid weather and the home’s heating is disabled. This could cause frozen and potentially bursting pipes, which in turn could lead to flooding, costing thousands of dollars in repairs. wolfSSL is designed specifically to prevent these issues. Devices secured with wolfSSL give homeowners a necessary comfort knowing their home is resistant to wireless intruders and other security threats.

CES 2015: Connected Cars

As day two of CES progressed, we were able to visit many more interesting booths – including the Audi booth. Audi demonstrated a self driving car this year, a new Virtual Cockpit rear-seat navigation display, and a smart watch in coordination with LG that can control parts of the vehicle.

As connected cars evolve, securing the data transferring between the internal car systems, external servers, and mobile devices is critical. wolfSSL is used in several of today’s smart car systems, using SSL/TLS and cryptography to secure and authenticate data. If you are interested in using wolfSSL in a connected car system, feel free to reach out to us at info@wolfssl.com with any questions.
