Technologies and Techniques for Securing Connected Devices
Day: 02.27.2014
Time: 11:30am – 12:00pm
Speaker: Chris Conlon

Connected and smart devices, in conjunction with smart applications, are continually enabling exciting possibilities for the future. As we rely on these systems more frequently in our everyday lives, it is becoming a necessity for them to be designed and implemented with good security practices in mind.

New attacks and vulnerabilities are in the news and media on a daily basis, and as such, it is important that engineers, developers, and managers understand how to be protect applications and devices from such attacks. Security is a broad and often complex field, which can be confusing, overwhelming, and time consuming.

This presentation will introduce several security technologies and techniques for securing smart and connected devices, systems, and applications – giving attendees a good starting place and better understanding for developing secure connected devices for today and into the future. Technologies and techniques covered in this presentation will include a discussion about preventing man-in-the-middle attacks with SSL/TLS, optimizing SSL for resource-limited devices, current industry standards for device security, code signing and secure firmware updates, using hardware cryptography on devices, random number generation, and key generation and storage.
