The amalgam of ultra low-power computing and connectivity in the Internet of Things (IoT) is at a crossroads. At one end of the spectrum is the promise of design transformation in automotive, industrial, smart home, medical, and more. At the other end is the frequent and regular news of security breaches; ranging from malware that is unleashed leading to Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) to battery-drain attacks having the potential of jeopardizing the whole premise and promise of IoT.
These security breaches of edge devices leave a lot of the vulnerabilities exposed, which is cause for major concern for IoT developers. This article gives you an overview of what an IoT node needs for a faster and simpler implementation of robust security.
