Developing IoT devices without security is like cooking fish&chips without a fryer – the result is hardly going to be perfect. With millions of connections and objects that speak to each other you really want to make sure that your products are immune to hacking, cloning and counterfeiting. Achieving this needs clever strategies that enable you to clearly identify electronic objects. In order to enable companies to gain easy access to personalized security hardware, EBV has joined forces with Infineon and Data I/O to create a new supply chain serviceRead More
If you’re an electronics developer designing IoT or other connected applications you will know two things: Firstly, fast-time-to-market is a key to success. Secondly, security is a complex feature to implement, however it’s of great importance. Another truth you probably are aware of is that a vast amount of devices currently on the market compromise security for more competitive retail price and quicker release. With the rising number of cyber-attacks system designers will need to rethink their security structures and implement advanced security features while meeting strict development deadlines.

Security is essential for the growing Internet of Things. As you probably know, more and more devices are connecting to the Internet every day. It has even been predicted that by 2021 over 28 billion devices will be connected, with 16  billion of them being directly related to the IoT. The infographic below highlights the growing IoT and why security is so important for the billions of new devices. EBV Elektronik is offering support when it comes to security strategies and efficient implementation of safety features into your designs. Please don’t hesitate to getRead More
Wow, that headline sounds dramatic. Will we really need to battle our own connected kitchen appliances, smartwatches and printers at some point? To answer this questions let’s assess some recent events. Taking Out Some Of The Most Frequently Visited Internet Services With One Attack Just a few weeks back a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack on Domain Name System (DNS) service provider DynDNS caused a major outage of a number of well-known internet pages and brands (e.g. Amazon, PayPal, Spotify, Soundcloud, Twitter). For those not familiar with the termRead More
Windows Device Guard
We received a lot of feedback from small and medium sized enterprise (SME) customers who are looking for ways to protect company-owned computers, machines and PCs/laptops against the increasing number of threats in the interconnected security landscape. Therefore we have recently published an article on Windows Device Guard and the powerful features of Microsoft’s security tool. In this post we will take a look at the effort you will have to take to implement and make use of Device Guard. Modern malicious attacks are getting more and more of aRead More
Android Smartphone
Business emails, private photos and important documents – users tend to store sensitive data on their smartphones creating the need for privacy and security solutions on the devices. Therefore Apple and Google protect your data with full disk encryption (FDE) on iOS and Android products. This protection of all data stored on our phones is usually achieved by using a passcode which you need to enter to unlock the device. To the user the solutions of Apple and Google appear very similar. On both systems it is possible to setRead More
Yes, the IoT will spark billions of new connections. Yes, there will be tons of unattended and autonomous devices connected to the internet that need to be secured. And yes everybody knows it. So why do we still see headlines about hacks popping up on a daily basis? Because implementing security isn’t easy nor is it cheap. Semiconductor manufacturers have understood this problem and are developing solutions in order to supply components that enable cost efficient and effortless implementation of protective features into applications. The latest “weapon” for the fightRead More

IoT and security should go hand in hand. Unfortunately they don’t as proven by tons of hacks of cars, smartphones, clouds and more. This is a major upset as security is the prerequisite for a successful future of IoT. If we can’t fix issues in this area now and develop strategies to integrate security solutions in all future aspects and areas of our connected world we will fail or at least slow down the adoption and introduction of the IoT. Basically every technologist should be aware and well informed aboutRead More
