Key Learning Points:
- Understand risks associated with connected devices
- See how 20 years of lessons learned in PKI can be applied to the emerging Internet of Things
- Hear about case studies for establishing a trusted authentication and secure communications framework for IoT devices
Connected devices provide valuable new functionality as well as new revenue opportunities. They also can introduce significant security risks, as many devices that are now being connected were not designed with security in mind. Cryptography (encryption and digital signing) is a critical technology to establish “trust” in the Internet of Things.
