Securing embedded devices
by Zeljka Zorz - Friday, 23 April 2012.
Like with computers, mobile phones, cars and many other things that man created, thermostats, automatic doors, insulin pumps, control panels for a great many instruments and other embedded devices were first created to function without little or no thought for security.

But things change, and embedded devices - those small, programmable chips that are becoming so ubiquitous as our modern lives become increasingly filled with electronic tools and gadgets - will have to become more secure as time goes by.

In this podcast recorded at the Amphion Forum in Munich, Mocana CTO James Blaisdell talks about securing embedded devices.

He differentiates between two existing types - those that users are allowed to modify and update, and those that are used by critical infrastructure systems and, therefore, should be inaccessible to anyone who isn't authorized - and concentrates on ways for securing the latter.
