At this week’s Chicago IoT Meetup, Roman Budek of NXP gave a talk on understanding and implementing embedded system security. What follows are the high points of the talk:

1. What makes IoT security unique? The IoT will consists of billions of connected, embedded devices. The more embedded devices connected to a gateway, the greater the security risk..

2. Why is it important to secure all end nodes? If a connected thermostat for a commercial freezer in a restaurant was hacked, the result could be food s

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a hot topic right now, and not just because of internet-connected Nest thermostats. For the average person, though, IoT may not seem relevant. A “smart home” might sound like science fiction, but it’s something everyone needs to get up to speed on. Once you understand it a bit more, you can make a decision whether or not to embrace it.

IoT development projects are everywhere, and affordable, advanced technology is the driving force behind this fast-growing phenomenon. Smaller, more accessible hardware and the flexibility to use common programming languages make it easier than ever before to develop these embedded IoT systems. From hobbyists programming their own single-board computers to companies developing devices we can control from our mobile devices, the IoT is rapidly expanding.Whether you’re creating a quick prototype or an entire IoT-powered business application, here’s a look at the small but incredibly smart technology of IoT development to give you an idea of what hardware and software you’ll need and some skills to look for in an IoT programmer.

By all accounts the Internet of Things (IoT) is prepping for explosive growth.  IoT refers not only PC and mobile devices connected to the internet, but also internet-enabled sensors and devices in industrial machines, home appliances, automobiles, buildings, and wearable devices.Cisco predicts that the number of devices connected to the internet will double from 25 billion of 2015 to 50 billion by 2020.IDC estimates the spending on IoT will double from $690 billion in 2015 to $1.3 trillion in 2019, 17 percent annual growth.

Another year at the Consumer Electronics Show and more records fell. Attendance topped 173,000 — including 50,000 from outside the U.S. — with 3,800 exhibitors covering 2.5 million square feet.But this year did not have any truly impressive, jaw-dropping product-tech debuts and felt very much like the last two to three years. The really cool topic remains the advent of the Internet of Things, or IoT, where the Web will move past logging onto a “www” URL to access content and instead free-flow in real-time, seamlessly throughout one’s typical day of interactions at home (web-connected shower, water heater, self-watering flower pots), on the road (connected car, exit signs), at work (thermostats, light bulbs), during lunch (bistro table, interactive menu), shopping (product displays, fitting rooms), dropping the kids at soccer (connected ball, goal-net, shin guards), and picking up some groceries (shopping cart interacts with your fridge’s inventory).
