Renesas: Device Security for the IIoT

September 07, 2016 // By Carl Stenquist and Wil Florentino, Renesas; Alan Grau, Icon Labs
The viability of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) depends on the security of the endpoints, the network and all of its subsystems. Unfortunately though, traditional security solutions do not scale down to support the RTOS-based devices that make up the bulk of the IIoT. New solutions and approaches are required. This paper describes security requirements for IIoT devices and details solutions available today for securing these devices.
