Article on Security Fundamentals for Embedded Software

We recently read a good article from EE Times about security fundamentals for embedded software. This article points out that embedded software and device developers should take security precautions into consideration, as many developers assume that their applications or devices are not vulnerable to attack.

Topics covered in the article include doing a “threat analysis” to determine how attackers could attack an embedded device, things to keep in mind when developing embedded software systems, and common mistakes made by embedded developers which can easily lead to vulnerability.
