IETF draft-irtf-t2trg-iot-seccons: State-of-the-Art and Challenges for the IoT Security

State-of-the-Art and Challenges for the Internet of Things Security

The Internet of Things (IoT) concept refers to the usage of standard Internet protocols to allow for human-to-thing and thing-to-thing communication. The security needs for IoT systems are well-recognized and many standardization steps to provide security have been taken, for example, the specification of Constrained Application Protocol (CoAP) secured with Datagram Transport Layer Security (DTLS). However, security challenges still exist, not only because there are some use cases that lack a suitable solution, but also because many IoT devices and systems have been designed and deployed with very limited security capabilities. In this document, we first discuss the various stages in the lifecycle of a thing. Next, we document the security threats to a thing and the challenges that one might face to protect against these threats. Lastly, we discuss the next steps needed to facilitate the deployment of secure IoT systems. This document can be used by IoT standards specifications as a reference for details about security considerations applying to the specified protocol.

Linaro update on TEE kernel driver

Today Joakim Bech posted a new entry in the Linaro blog, “Evolution of a generic TEE kernel driver“. This is a good introduction to ARM Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) and it’s integration to the Linux kernel.
