Secure Hardening of Embedded Devices
by Steve Hoffenberg, with Chris Rommel, Jaunuary 2015
What questions are addressed?
- Efforts to restrict unauthorized access to connected devices are necessary but not sufficient to provide security.
- Nearly every element of a device's internal systems can be security-enhanced. The degree to which these systems should be protected is a critical decision in the design process.
- Implementation of multiple security measures does not guarantee complete security.
- Penetration testing by security professionals is an essential best practice for development of connected devices.
