Reference: Embedded Hardware Security for IoT Applications

Published on: December 2016

This white paper describes basic security principles that are critical for IoT implementations and then reviews the application of these security principles for an example use case – managing the lifecycle of IoT devices. The white paper discusses embedded security – where hardware and/or software security mechanisms are built into the end devices used in an IoT architecture. The white paper then further focuses on embedded hardware security, where end devices include hardware features and functions to ensure that the appropriate security requirements are implemented and maintained.
