other than ec2 from amazon, no thought seems to be given at this point to security. suprisingly not even mbed for arm's cortex m0. nothing in book i read, nor online at mbed except for three questions from potential users in the sites forum: one a year ago and two others three years ago. no response to their queries. but that does not mean that mbed did not insitute security. but no indication on the site about that.
cloud services still pretty crappy and uneven not only about reliability but security as well.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
