Open book for secure systems

December 1, 2014 OpenSystems Media

It seems that almost every day we hear about security breaches, from relatively small exploits to massive breaches at major corporations and even the U.S. Postal Service. Cyber security is now a universal concern. Embedded developers need to be extra vigilant with the ubiquity of Internet-connected devices and the ever-growing Internet of Things (IoT). Many security techniques exist at hardware and software levels, but the best way to combat these attacks is by preventing them through built-in security – no more security afterthoughts.

In "Platform Embedded Security Technology Revealed: Safeguarding the Future of Computing with Intel Embedded Security and Management Engine" from Apress and Intel, seasoned security researcher Xiaoyu Ruan of Intel’s Platform Engineering Group thoroughly explains embedded system security. He walks readers through the embedded engine, security models, threat mitigations, and design details of algorithms, protocols, and interesting applications, with Intel’s security and management engine as the basis of security techniques used. It’s a thorough read to strengthen your security fundamentals.

This book is part ApressOpen, publisher Apress’s open-access program for free and shareable ebooks. Other ApressOpen book topics include data virtualization, cloud security infrastructure, sensor technologies, and the IoT.
