M2M/IoT Cellular Data Security

Historically most M2M communications were focused around proprietary protocols, private networks, leased lines and POTS. Some systems have moved to local LANs and TCP/IP. Now they are moving to Internet access and cellular connectivity. Most efforts to date are focused on just getting things to work with only minimal consideration to overall system security. The communications environment for the M2M/IoT industry has changed and is continuing to change rapidly. With the introduction of the Internet into the equation, the security environment has become very treacherous. Considering all of the very interesting things that are already being connected, let alone all the things that have yet to be imagined, the number of very intelligent and determined people that will attempt to gain un-authorized access to absolutely everything, for both malicious and benign reason, will multiply rapidly.

Tailoring IoT platforms to the requirements of specific use cases

whitePaper | April 13, 2021

The Internet of Things has evolved in the last 10-15 years from a long-term visionary idea to our current reality, present in more and more domains of our everyday lives. Many IoT architectures and platforms are being proposed today by various academic and industrial consortia, in domains as diverse as smart manufacturing, smart homes, smart cities or smart transport, to name just a few. These different IoT platforms have many things in common, as they all rely on connecting some smart sensor and actuator devices to each other and to the Internet, providing value-added services and applications to us, human users, either directly, or in an indirect manner. However, by closely analyzing their structure and operational focus, we can observe that these IoT architectures and platforms have also special features tailored to the requirements of different use cases.
