Security for IoT Can't Be an Afterthought

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
Earlier this week, in my presentation at on "Communicating with the Internet of Things" one of the points I emphasized repeatedly is the necessity to think about security early and often. Any time you are responsible for creating a device that can communicate with the internet, whether that be a home automation gateway, Wi-Fi-controlled light bulb, or and industrial control system designed for remote monitoring, you need to be sure you understand how that system can be attacked. As security MVP Troy Hunt likes to put it, you need to "hack yourself first."
credit: nwogen on The reason I bring this up is that I had an exchange today with Cuno Pfister of Oberon Microsystems, who announced today the Limmat platform, a gateway device that bridges Bluetooth LE and HTTP, part of which was about how they're securing the device. As part of his response, Cuno pointed to this article, which describes a recently discovered flaw in BMW's ConnectedDrive system that could potentially expose 2 million cars to remote unlocking or disabling. Two MILLION cars. Try to wrap your head around that number for...(Read whole news on source site)

Context Aware Access to Command Prompt or PowerShell in Windows

I have been ramping up on ASP.NET 5 which has had me in PowerShell or the command prompt quite a bit (this is to support upcoming x-plat features).  In many cases, I have needed to run commands in the context of a folder.  Here is an easy way to do this in Windows Explorer…   From the Windows File menu Suppose I am in a folder and I want to immediately go to the command prompt or PowerShell and already be in the context of that directory?  I simply go to the File menu option in Windows

JavaScript Is The Language Of 2014


R Heads For Top Ten Languages

The Astonishing Rise Of Dart

There are also some interesting differences in language behavior. For
example, if you look at the statistical language R it doesn't have a
lot of repos on GitHub and the number of pushes per repo is
comparatively very low but it's number one for new forks - why? Are
stats programs more likely to take a
whole repo and customize it rather
than contribute to the main project?

You can see the same sort of pattern in Apple's new Swift language.

Lambda methods and implicit context

The C# compiler is lazy, which is usually a very good thing, but that can also give you some issues. We recently tracked down a memory usage issue to code that looked roughly like this. var stats = new PerformatStats { Size = largeData.Length }; stats.OnCompletion += () => this.RecordCompletion(stats); Write(stats, o => { var sp = new Stopwatch(); foreach (var item in largeData) { sp.Restart(); // do something with this stats.RecordOperationDuration(sp);
} }); On the surface, this looks good. We are only using largeData for a short while, right? But behind the scene, something evil lurks. Here is what this actually is translated to by the compiler: __DisplayClass3 cDisplayClass3_1 = new __DisplayClass3 { __this = this, largeData = largeData }; cDisplayClass3_1.stats = new PerformatStats { Size = cDisplayClass3_1.largeData.Length }; cDisplayClass3_1.stats.OnCompletion += new Action(cDisplayClass3_1, __LambdaMethod1__); Write(cDisplayClass3_1.stats, new Action(cDisplayClass3_1, __LambdaMethod2__)); You need to pay special attention to what is going on. We need to maintain the local state of the variables. So the compiler lift the local parameters into an object. (Called __DisplayClass3). Creating...(Read whole news on source site)

Manipulating HTML Tables – Part 3 (Deleting Rows)

My last two blog posts showed you how to add rows to an HTML table. Now, let’s learn how to delete a row from a table. In order to accomplish this you will need to add a ‘Delete’ button to each row of the table. The HTML The HTML for this sample is similar to my last blog post, with the addition of a new
to allow for a column in which you place a ‘Delete’ button. I have highlighted the change in bold in the code below.
