Chipmaker ARM announces microprocessor aimed at improving the physical security capabilities of devices making up the internet of things. Security is no longer optional in the light of the rapid adoption of internet-connected devices making up the internet of things (IoT), according to chip manufacturer ARM. Malicious entities are increasingly using more novel techniques for compromising connected devices,” said Paul Williamson, vice-president and general manager, IoT device IP, at ARM. However, he noted that IoT security was a multi-faceted problem, with billions of diverse devices requiring a system-wide approach to protecting them.
