Internet of Things (IoT) Security: from specification to code – HAIC Talk with Hannes Tschofenig

We’re happy to announce the next HAIC Talk:

Speaker: Hannes Tschofenig, Distinguished Engineer, ARM Ltd. 

Title: Internet of Things (IoT) Security: from specification to code

Date: 19 May, 2021

Time: 16:00 – 17:30. The lecture will be approximately 60 minutes, after which there will be time for questions.

Venue: Online



Lecture description: During the last 10 years security researchers and standards experts have been working on specifications to ensure that state-of-the-art cryptography can be used on low end IoT devices. Most of those standards efforts have either been completed or are in the final stages. At the same time, industry groups and governmental agencies have written IoT security guidelines offering valuable suggestions for developers to design more secure IoT products. Even IoT security regulation exists asking for state-of-the-art crypto, the use of standards, and for a ban of passwords.

What challenges do developers face designing IoT products? Can they use open source software implementations and follow IoT security guidelines? In this talk Hannes Tschofenig will make an attempt to answer this question.
