Break down the misconceptions of the Internet of Things by examining the different security building blocks available in Intel Architecture (IA) based IoT platforms. This book reviews the threat pyramid, secure boot, chain of trust, and the SW stack leading up to defense-in-depth.
The IoT presents unique challenges in implementing security and Intel has both CPU and Isolated Security Engine capabilities to simplify it. This book explores the challenges to secure these devices to make them immune to different threats originating from within and outside the network. The requirements and robustness rules to protect the assets vary greatly and there is no single blanket solution approach to implement security.
Demystifying Internet of Things Security provides clarity to industry professionals and provides and overview of different security solutions
What You'll Learn: Secure devices, immunizing them against different threats originating from inside and outside the network; Gather an overview of the different security building blocks available in Intel Architecture (IA) based IoT platforms; Understand the threat pyramid, secure boot, chain of trust, and the software stack leading up to defense-in-depth.
Who This Book Is For: Strategists, developers, architects, and managers in the embedded and Internet of Things (IoT) space trying to understand and implement the security in the IoT devices/platforms.
