IoT security experts are exploring options to enhance public-key cryptography in an era where quantum computing can soon crack current algorithms. To find the sweet spot that meets the constraints of IoT devices, SecureRF partnered with Andes Technology to bring post-quantum cryptographic capability to small, low-power, low-resource IoT devices and nodes.
Security concerns should not prevent your customers from embarking on their IoT journey. You can help them address potential vulnerabilities and limit risks by understanding the weak spots. This series of blogs looks at where the IoT gaps are and provides strategies, tips and best practices for closing them. Here’s a look at the causes behind security problems and best practices and strategies to help your customers keep their environments secure.
Cyberattacks on the electric grid system continue to increase in frequency and sophistication. As utility companies deploy more IoT technologies, they face new security and compliance challenges. Utilities can thwart attacks with an end-to-end security program that incorporates field devices and sensors, communications networks, data centers and the cloud.
Batteries are problematic for the IoT, but Ilika and its Stereax thin-film technology may be the breakthrough that IoT solutions providers have been looking for.
As the Wi-Fi Alliance prepares to embrace IEEE 802.11ax, IoT solution providers need to prepare to have much greater control over IoT device density and quality of service (QoS).
In the latest wave of robotic roll-outs, companies are building robots that can work side-by-side with employees. They are connecting the robot’s IoT sensors to the cloud, plus adding intelligence and maintenance analytics to the robotic workforce.
Fighting marketing hyperbole, Intel’s Mark Bohr resurrected an old metric to get the industry to a common reference point regarding IC transistor density so solution providers – and buyers – don’t get tricked.
In Johannesburg, South Africa, Absa Cape Epic recently renewed its partnership with solution provider Dimension Data for the world’s premier mountain bike race. Dimension Data built sophisticated hotspots that provide digital video communications along with a network of connected wearables and cameras to track riders start to finish.
