Microsoft Experiment Looks Into the 7 Properties of Highly Secured Devices for IoT
A team from the Microsoft Research New Experiences and Technologies (NExT) Operating Systems Group has been working on methods to introduce high level security in IoT microcontrollers, coming up with a list of seven properties they believe are essential for protecting devices and could be easily implemented by any manufacturer.
MOSQUITO Attack Uses Headphones, Speakers, and Microphones to Leak Data Over Ultrasonic Frequencies
A cybersecurity research group in Israel has recently published a paper in which they describe the MOSQUITO attack—an attack that can reverse speakers and microphones in air-gapped computers, and use them to send data to one another using ultra-sonic frequencies.
