Maintaining Security In A Heterogeneous And Changing World
Embedded systems are only secure until they’re not. While approaches for secure device provisioning have been around for well over a decade, ways of keeping devices patched and up to date are harder to come by - especially when operating cost enters the fray. So far the most promising approaches for secure device management are heavily silo'd and reliant on proprietary agents and cloud services. These work in limited circumstances but this vendor-centric approach doesn’t scale to the real world of heterogeneous deployments, critical infrastructure and long-term support requirements. A new interoperable approach is needed. To address these points, prpl Foundation Chief Technologist Cesare Garlati will be joined on stage by Jon Geater, CTO at Thales and ex Chair of the GlobalPlatform Security Task Force. Garlati and Geater will share with the audience their practitioner’s experience securing real word embedded applications. In particular, the two industry veterans will explain the common factors, considerations and technical options for running a truly trustworthy heterogeneous network of embedded devices and the best practices developed by their respective organizations to successfully implement security open standards. This session will provide essential learnings for attendees looking to pick through the marketing hype to gain real actionable insight into open standards for establishing and maintaining security across heterogeneous hardware/software architectures.
