How To Build Extremely Secure IoT Hardware Using Azure Sphere
There is a fundamental mistake that most research organisations make when predicting the number of IoT devices to hit the market. They fail to mention one critical condition.
And that is, IF SECURITY ALLOWS IT.
Currently, there are billion of devices shipped each year that still can’t be connected to the internet. Simply because their security can’t be guaranteed.
The reason being that each developer or hardware manufacturer has to independently ensure their devices’ security. That just doesn’t scale.
But what if I told you that security can now be scaled as well?
Microsoft recently released an end-to-end IoT platform with built-in security. Azure Sphere.
It consists of three layers of security.
- The first is built into the microcontroller chip during manufacturing
- The second is built into its Linux OS for application development
- And a cloud-based security service for monitoring and updating the device’s security.
Further, Visual Studio brings the much-needed modernisation of embedded systems development. In the video below, I demonstrate how to configure and build a basic hashtag#Azure Sphere application using Seeed Studio ‘s MT3620 Dev Kit containing the world’s first Azure Sphere Certified microcontroller designed by MediaTek
THE HALF LIFE OF A LEARNED SKILL USED TO BE 30 YEARS. TODAY IT'S 5.
And it will continue to decrease exponentially. The only way to avoid becoming irrelevant is to get in the habit of reinventing yourself every single day.
