IOT Security

This last week I gave a talk at the Linuxing in London group about IOT security. The main themes were why you should bother and how to secure a system.

The talk looked at some historical examples where systems were not as secure as the creators intended and what kind of mistakes were made.

We looked at “The seven properties of secure systems” from Galen Hunt at Microsoft Azure and the trusted platform module from the trusted computing group. There were some good questions at the end quizzing about physical security and certification.

Element14 have also been thinking about security and have been running a series on Twitter looking at my Azure Sphere experiments.

You can see a video of the talk over at skills matter and feel free to read and use the slides.
