IoT Security Ratings Needed


Concerns about security have been growing alongside adoption of the IoT, and it seems to be making some headway. This is good news, if it continues, because one of the biggest concerns about buying connected devices is that they can provide inroads into personal data. Data security has been a persistent annoyance for several years. Almost anyone who travels or shops at major department store... » read more

Next-Gen Botnets


Botnets, once limited to computer networks, are expanding and changing as more devices are connected to the Internet—and becoming much harder to detect and destroy. The term botnet—a contraction for robotic networks—conjures up the days when it was just a collection of computers that were largely autonomous, on a local network and usually assigned to repetitive tasks. But that is chang... » read more

White-Box Crypto Gains Traction


Ask any cryptography expert which is better, hardware- or software-based cryptography, and they'll almost always choose the hardware. But as the IoE begins to take root in cost-sensitive markets with tight market windows, that won't always be an option. Plan B is software cryptography, which historically has been used at the application level in the form of anti-virus, anti-spyware, and soft... » read more

Smarter Cities


One of the benefits touted by IoE proponents is that smart cities will improve the quality of life and make cities more “livable.” The concept is appealing, and if it comes to pass as visionaries hope, the smart city of the future will be a virtual cornucopia of convenience and efficiency. Residents and vistors will never be lost with the proliferation of location technologies, which als... » read more

The Rise Of Dynamic Networks


The Internet of the future, and particularly the [getkc id="260" comment="Internet of Everything"], will be interlaced with millions if not billions of intelligent, dynamic, self-organizing networks. These networks will be full of elements that are capable of autonomic self-registration across these multitudes of networks. It is one thing to put up a security perimeter when you know who the... » read more

Rising Threats From Differential Power Analysis


Differential power analysis (DPA) has been a threat vector on the chip landscape for a number of years. It was discovered around the mid 1990s by the teams at [getentity id="22671" e_name="Rambus"]’ Cryptography Research Division, and turned out to be a very effective tool for compromising the ubiquitous SIM card environment. “The most traditional market for DPA has been with smart cards... » read more

Lightweight Cryptography For The IoE


This is the age where technology is expected to do more, faster, anonymously, and often invisibly. And it's supposed to use less power, with smaller footprints, unobtrusively and intuitively. And all that needs to be protected with cryptography. That's the goal, at least. But as Simon Blake-Wilson, vice president of products and marketing for [getentity id="22671" e_name="Rambus"]' Cryptogra... » read more

Emerging Security Protocols


As the proliferation of mobile devices ramps up at escalating rates, securing these devices and the infrastructure they run on is becoming a top priority for both the hardware and the data that swirls within it. Traditional security platforms such as firewalls and antivirus programs are still a viable part of the security envelope, but the rapid emergence of zero-day/hour threats is somethin... » read more
