Security Best Practices for Embedded Systems - John Mehaffey, Mentor Graphics

Sign up or log in to save this event to your list and see who's attending!


Computer security concepts are well known, there are many known exploits and ways to counter them, but most of the focus has been on IT systems (servers).
Computer security in consumer products is often left to the last minute, if it is implemented at all. In today's increasingly connected world, embedded systems can provide high value targets for hackers, criminal enterprises, and terrorists. Security for embedded computer systems can no longer be left to chance.

This talk starts with an overview of security concepts and terms, describes security modules available for Linux, provides some example exploits to provide context, and establishes best practices to ensure that security is built into your product from the start. The talk is appropriate for developers and managers interested in security, but no security experience is assumed.
