Best Practice for End-to-End IoT Security

Every IoT layer is prone to different risks. This creates a broad range of threats, from data interception and impersonation, to location tracking, denial of service and service frauds.
Adoption of basic security measures and protection to reduce the attack surface at each layer can have a huge impact on the overall level of deployment security.

Wind River and Xilinx find romance in The Hague

My travels this month took me to The Hague in the Netherlands for programmable device maker Xilinx’s developers’ forum. A highlight was the news that it had teamed up with software developer Wind River to produce a platform for autonomous driving.
Founded in 1983, Wind River became known for its VxWorks real-time operating system and its liking by Nasa for an operating system for space missions, starting with the Clementine Moon probe in 1995. Today, every vehicle on Mars has Wind River software inside.

I caught up with Wade Wessels to learn how IoT and connected services are helping Donaldson do more for their customers

We know IoT is a critical component for the future of business and a powerful catalyst for digital transformation. That’s why we’re excited to work with companies like Donaldson, a leading worldwide manufacturer of filtration systems, to bring IoT solutions to new industries and solve real business problems.

Donaldson recently introduced iCue™, a connected filtration service. The IoT-enabled subscription service monitors industrial dust collectors, sending data and real-time maintenance alerts directly to facility management teams. This information helps prompt timely maintenance to support production uptime and help reduce operating costs.

Joined-up cities need joined-up thinking

Smart cities are complex beasts, as conglomerates all over the world are beginning to realise. Even relatively simple route planning or sensors warning when public waste bins need emptying can prove more difficult than many imagined.
So think for a moment how that extrapolates to the vision of the future city where everything is connected and autonomous vehicles are ferrying citizens around. In fact, do we even need the citizens, but that is probably a debate for another time.
