Edge Security in an Insecure World M. Tim Jones
Security is often an afterthought in edge device design. Edge devices can be secured when you understand how they can be exploited. In this blog, we'll explore access security, data security, and manageability as the means to ensure your edge device doesn't become the next security incident headline.

Router Security Vulnerabilities Could Compromise the IoT Steven Keeping
Wi-Fi routers offer a cheap, convenient gateway to connect IoT sensors to the Cloud, but tests reveal the devices have weak security. As the IoT grows, they could prove even more enticing targets for hackers. New developments bring more protection, but other technologies could prove a better option.

Securing IoT Products from Unique Threats Sravani Bhattacharjee
IoT products are vulnerable to several attack vectors and are frequently hacked for the lack of adequate security measures. This blog discusses the unique challenges of securing IoT and presents a methodical 4-tier system design approach to predictably secure IoT products.

Next-generation Firewalls: More than ACL Filters Jeff Fellinge
Next-generation firewall capabilities and features now extend far beyond their traditional predecessors and are worth a serious look for many different scenarios from small-home office to enterprise.

Li-Fi: Wireless Connections Without Radios Charles Byers
The emerging technologies of Visible Light Communication, Free-Space Optical Networking, and Li-Fi offer many of the advantages of wireless technologies like Wi-Fi, but without the problems associated with RF spectrum use. We will explore some of the associated tradeoffs and recent advancements.

The Underlying Chemistry of Piezo Materials Liam Critchley
The electrical properties of both piezoelectric and piezoresistive materials change when subjected to mechanical deformation. Here, we show how and why these electrical changes are due to changes within the crystal structure at the atomic level and the chemistry involved with these changes.

Protect Device Communication Through Secure Protocols Jeff Fellinge
Stop attackers from snooping or tampering with your data by ensuring that your devices and systems use secure protocols for communicating with each other and other services across the internet and in the cloud.

How Device Inventory and Dependency Management Help Secure Larger Systems Jeff Fellinge
Building and maintaining a solid inventory of all on-premise and cloud-based assets with helpful metadata is a critical step to ensuring your security programs include all of your systems.

Keeping the Lights On: ESD and Thermal Protection for LED Lighting Systems TDK Corporation
There are several factors that can affect solid-state lighting including stress, packaging-related, and component-related issues. Discover the key threats that affect the reliability of LED lighting systems.

Threat Modeling Your Device Operations Helps Identify Unwanted Exposure Jeff Fellinge
