The Biggest Security Threats Facing Embedded Designers

The Biggest Security Threats Facing Embedded Designers

Embedded system designers face a number of threats to the applications that they develop for the IoT. One of the biggest threats comes from IoT subsystems that hackers can access, such as commercial networked HVAC systems, wireless base stations (e.g., small cells), implanted medical devices and their controllers, smart automobiles and the emerging networked transportation infrastructure, home and industrial-infrastructure network gateway systems, and remote industrial sensors. In some cases, the end user may be motivated to attack an IoT subsystem they own or have access to, such as their smart residential electric meter, in hopes of a reduced electric bill; or their connected car, to bypass emissions controls. Other adversaries may be economically motivated, or could be nation states preparing for cyber war.
