There is - but since update in basically an automated process, we have essentially embedded a password into the code - a very bad practice. It is encrypted and known to only a few in our organization, but still it is probably vulnerable to being hacked if somebody were to work at it hard enough. We are planning to change to a dynamically generated key that will be provided via a newwork connection back to our central service organization - but we don't have that infrastructure quote ready yet.
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. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
