Establishing a root of trust to secure the IoT

Security is not something that any developer can ignore. It is no longer safe, for the OEM or their customers, to assume that their product or service is immune to cyber attacks. The sheer size of the IoT increases the attack surface, creating a greater opportunity for the criminal element. Protection must now be endemic, meaning it is the responsibility of everyone to at least understand the threat, as well as the solutions available to protect devices from that threat.

Fortunately, solutions now exist that can secure even the simplest connected devices, thanks to technology that can be integrated into practically any design at minimal cost.

This exclusive white paper from Mouser Electronics explains the basic principles of security in a connected world and how a root of trust helps protect the IoT. It presents the threat in terms that are easily understood and describes how embedded developers can secure their IoT devices through solutions available today.
