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)

Make sure you read
which goes into much more depth and will answer your question. .NET
Core is essentially a fork of the NET Framework where we are taking the
base class libraries and optimizing and refactoring them into a much
more modular set. So it is a separate framework implementation, but you
would still recognize and use the libraries similarly in development.
The Core libraries and CoreCLR is cross-plat. .NET Framework 4.6 is
Windows only

Patterns On The Road – Russia 2015

If you’ve ever wondered how important Russian developers are to the .NET community, look no further than Resharper and DevExpress. The first comes to us from Saint Petersburg with love, the second is located in Tula, a 2-hour drive South from Moscow. At time when politicians and media feed us with fears and lies about Russia, we would like to remind how fruitful this relationship is to developers of all countries – and want to contribute to strengthen it.Today, I’m excited to announce I’ll deliver the Patterns On The Road tour from March 11th to March 18th in Moscow and
St Petersburg, the largest developer communities in Moscow. The objective of this tour is to promote the idea of pattern-oriented development: not just designing with patterns (what you’ve hopefully already done since the GoF book), but also thinking and coding with patterns. I’ll show how these ideas apply to killer problem: thread safety. For those who want to learn about PostSharp, there will be a free training day in both towns.An evening of patterns or a full day of PostSharp?
