Cybersecurity for embedded systems and the Internet of Things (IoT) is taking a step forward, as the Trusted Computing Group (TCG) today announced its latest guidelines and best practices for software and firmware updates for embedded systems.

Firmware and software updates are of increasing importance. Attackers constantly target the firmware and software in embedded systems, such as appliances and connected door locks, searching for vulnerabilities to exploit in order to establish a permanent foothold on the device. As a result, designers of embedded systems (ordinary items with an embedded computer) must be prepared to deliver firmware and software updates that customers must promptly install to ensure that these connected devices remain secure.
