CEC – Securing IoT Devices using arm TrustZone

One of the greatest challenges facing developers creating connected systems is securing their devices.  In the good old disconnected days, developers only had to concern themselves with physical tampering but today, systems are also vulnerable to remote attacks that can result in device cloning, repurposing, intellectual property theft, data manipulation and many other potential issues. … Continue reading CEC – Securing IoT Devices using arm TrustZone

CEC – Building Your Own Internet Connected PLC

Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC’s) are the foundation for manufacturing and the industrial IoT. Developers are probably used to purchasing off-the-shelf PLC controllers, but it is possible to build a simple low-cost PLC controller using microcontroller components. In this course, we will explore PLC fundamentals and how we can create our own internet connected PLC controller … Continue reading CEC – Building Your Own Internet Connected PLC

CEC – Connecting Edge Devices to the IoT using Amazon FreeRTOS

Amazon FreeRTOS is a new operating system designed help embedded software developers easily connect their devices to Amazon Web Services (AWS). Amazon FreeRTOS is based on the popular open source FreeRTOS kernel but extends those capabilities by providing developers with connectivity libraries such as MQTT, TLS, device provisioning and even firmware updates. In this course, … Continue reading CEC – Connecting Edge Devices to the IoT using Amazon FreeRTOS
