Embedding Security from the Start in IoT

3Q 2016 | IN-4131

The Internet of Things (IoT) is connecting more and more smart devices and machines to the Internet. Smart factories and connected supply chains are presenting many manufacturing companies with new security challenges. Malware, manipulation, sabotage, faulty firmware updates, and counterfeit components are examples of digital threats that can bring entire production lines to a halt and may lead to significant costs. In the communications infrastructure, wireless small cell systems for 4G / LTE networks are similarly vulnerable, as they are generally installed at street level in outdoor deployments, and often via third-party access provider networks with less stringent security than the larger carriers. These devices are easy prey for hackers, who can use them to access networks that are extremely vulnerable to GPS jamming, spoofing, and other timing security breaches.
