The ultimate potential of the Internet of Things (IoT), as seen in the success of billions of intelligent devices working in concert with artificial intelligence (AI) applications in the cloud, will only be achieved if the security of such a vastly powerful and complex system can be maintained.
Doing so requires security implementations to be simple and mainstream. Designing and manufacturing secure IoT requires OEMs to cover a large technical, operational, and knowledge/skill gap where very few can afford the investment.
A key security pillar, foundational to IoT products, is a strong authentication or authorization mechanism. In this article, see how organizations can build secure key authentication with AWS IoT services and Microchip Technology’s secure element solutions for any given hardware platform—from Linux-capable microprocessors to the smallest microcontrollers.
