How to Design Future-proof Security for Your IoT Connected Devices


Securing your IoT devices is challenging. High-performance FPGAs such as the Cyclone* V and Arria* 10 can run computationally intensive security algorithms such as RSA and ECC, but the low-resource endpoints they connect to cannot. In addition to being too slow, these methods often do not fit in available RAM and ROM of constrained devices. As a result, many low-resource devices -- and therefore many systems -- are deployed with little or no protection. In addition, applications for automotive, industrial, medical, accounts payable, and others with multi-year lifecycles must address the coming threat from quantum computing that will break RSA and ECC.

In this session, experts from SecureRF and Intel will introduce security methods that are fast, flexible, and future-proof, running on low-resource devices. Topics will include:

• Current and future threats to connected low-resource devices

• How to use FPGAs for secure, flexible and upgradeable designs

• Strategies for delivering fast authentication and data protection for applications with resource constrained devices

• A real-world case study: The DE10-Nano development board and a low-resource device using SecureRF methods, including how-to tips for fast deployment.
