Tight budgets and product development lifecycles make it nearly impossible to consider all the necessary factors for embedding strong security throughout a device’s lifecycle. But when customer privacy and safety are at stake, it has to happen.
Cryptography has emerged as a flexible and highly scalable solution to enable critical authentication, encryption and signing capabilities for lightweight IoT devices. However, most product developers and manufacturers don’t know where to start.
Join Keyfactor’s Senior Director of IoT Product Management, Ellen Boehm, and Senior Vice President of Product Management, Mark Thompson, to discuss effective strategies to cryptographically bind identity to devices at scale and establish integrity throughout the device lifecycle.
In this webinar, you’ll learn about:
- The risks of poor IoT security implementation
- The advantages of symmetric and asymmetric cryptography for IoT
- How to embed and manage cryptography throughout the device lifecycle
- Real-world use cases for secure design and remote manufacturing
- How Solutions like Thales, wolfSSL & Keyfactor Can Help
