IoT as a Service: Lowering the Cost Barrier of IoT for Small and Mid-Sized Businesses

Article | March 18, 2020

There are already 20 billion IoT-connected devices, and 8 billion of those are devices used by enterprises, according to a report by Gartner. The impact of the Internet of Things market is potentially $11 trillion by 2025. The investment in IoT has come primarily from large businesses, but the technology is increasingly available via ‘as-a-service’, making it possible for businesses of all sizes to benefit. The ‘as-a-service’ model reduces the cost of ownership and capital expenditures and makes it easy for small businesses to investigate IoT with smaller up-font investments and less risk. Frank Della Rosa, research director at IDC, said that “Software as a Service (SaaS) continues to be the most highly deployed cloud segment, representing a commanding 62.4% of the total cloud market revenues.”

How Big Data and IoT Are Connected

Article | March 18, 2020

Big data as a term and a field, has been around for some time. It relates to the ways in which we study, analyze and process data sets that are too large to be handled by traditional data-processing software. Data can be described as ‘big’ when it demonstrates the four ‘V’ qualities: veracity (accuracy), velocity (speed), volume (size) and variety (both structured and unstructured). IoT, on the other hand, came much later and relates to devices, data and marrying them together. This area looks at making devices ‘smart’ (anything from watches to kettles) and collecting data about their performance or usage to influence consumer behavior.

Run-Time Provisioning of Security Credentials for IoT Devices

Article | March 18, 2020

To prevent counterfeit devices from joining a network or to limit the opportunity for network attacks, it’s important to authenticate devices attempting to join Internet of Things (IoT) networks and subsequently connect only authorized devices. The standard mechanism to securely authenticate clients connecting to a server is transport-layer-security (TLS) client-side authentication. To implement such authentication in an IoT network, the appropriate certificate authority (CA)—usually the IoT device provider—issues a unique X.509 certificate to each IoT device and the associated private key that functions as a unique security credential for the IoT device. Once the certificate and associated private key are stored on the IoT device, it may use them during the TLS client-authentication process to securely join the IoT network.

What Is IoT Forensics? Challenges Ahead and Best Tools to Use

Article | March 18, 2020

Internet of Things, generally known as IoT, is a network of objects or things. Embedded sensors help connect and exchange data with other objects via the internet. IoT is often related to the concept of smart homes, including devices like home security systems, cameras, lighting, refrigerators, etc. With all this data being transmitted over the internet, it is easy for the data to be modified, deleted, or stolen, which can lead to an invasion, theft, etc. IoT forensics plays a vital role in maintaining the integrity and security of the data being transmitted. Join us as we explore this fascinating web of devices and how you can get started in this vibrant field of forensics.
