Security, Safety, and IoT

Tales of the 2014 EELive Conference and Expo

by Amelia Dalton

We stormed the gates. We took no prisoners. Electronic engineering conferences will never be the same. EE Journal scoured this year's EELive Conference and Expo to bring you the the biggest trends, the coolest demonstrations, the best giveaways -- and this is just the beginning. In this week's Fish Fry, my guest is Matt Osminer, Director of Engineering at Cardinal Peak and the presenter of a special presentation at EELive called "Best Management and Technical Practices for Engineering an IoT Product". Michael and I chat about the unique challenges of designing connected products and investigate how (and why) management practices play a big role in designing for IoT. Also this week, I announce my top five highlights of this year's show - including details of Michael Barr's scary Tuesday keynote, some sugary delights at the Fantastical Theatre of Engineering Innovation and more.  Read More

Three little letters that rule the world. They are but the sun and we are but the moon. Oh IoT, where would we be without you? 2012 perhaps? In this episode of “On The Scene” we examine a wide range of IoT small-form-factor boards with Cliff Ortmeyer of Element14. Join us while we tour Element14’s booth at this year’s EELive! expo, and get chatty with Cliff. (11-Apr)

On the Scene: EELive 2014 Wrap Up

posted by Amelia Dalton

We stormed the gates. We took no prisoners. But, we did take home a lot of pens. Most importantly, we learned some stuff. Welcome to my new video blog called “On the Scene.” You can expect some jokes. You can expect some insight about this year’s Embedded Systems Conference (or whatever they’re calling it this week). And you can expect to see my smiling face. Think of it like a funny tech snack - if you will. (10-Apr)

Heartbleed: Serious Security Vulnerability

Posted on 04/16/14 at 2:19 PM by TotallyLost

Now if you would like a healthy chill in your spine about client and server side security, consider the following attack that is likely to show up in the wild soon, simply because of how easy/effective it is.

Since IT folks and customers have become VM…

Bruce ... I agree that authentication can be dramatically improved .... however that is less than 1% of the real problem when the base computing platform and environment is not secure.

John--

This has been a good & healthy bit of "argy bargy", thank you!

You've pointed out some good items and raised awareness that users need to take greater responsibility [a] for client-side security and [b] to 'vote' with their business for gre…

The answer to "how would you improve internet security" ... don't use it, or any computer connected to the internet, to process or store data that you can not risk being compromised.

I have held DOD security clearances, and managed secure data centers,…

Kudos (again) for raising good points; I am not sure I understand your line of thought however. Yes, there are always vectors of attack (malware, for example) ... are you suggesting that because there is no such thing as perfect security that we should n…
