The Internet of Things (IoT) is a game-changer for healthcare, connected homes and cities, ground transportation, and many other domains. From a technical point of view, IoT is very challenging, given such elements as hardware design and certification, embedded software on resource-limited targets, Internet-scale management servers, and ground-breaking user interfaces. In this article, I will look at one of the most challenging and sensitive areas: IoT security. I will explore different topics – from hardware to cloud servers – and discuss applicable open source projects. Hardware security is very difficult to master. Why? Because when you deal with hardware security, you need to deal with physics. The real world has much more stringent rules than the digital world. A common reaction is: Why should I care? Physically accessing one device should not compromise the whole system, right? True. But, it is a big deal. In a nutshell, anyone can buy or physically access the device and injec...
