Arrow Electronics has published an eBook that incorporates all security considerations that should be taken into account by embedded product developers to assist in minimising the vulnerability of their products to malicious and unintentional threats.
Recognising that security has many components and that breaches often happen wherever the weakest point, the company has compiled a checklist of the ten essential elements for robust security and details these in the eBook. The company has pulled on its expertise and many suppliers to map out security advice for anyone creating an embedded or connected device today. The company relates how this can be executed in practice, from initial design to system implementation and throughout the supply chain.
As well as mapping out which parts of a device ought to be protected, the hardware and software that can provide that protection, and a glossary of key security terms and concepts, the book also documents a selection of products from the company's suppliers that can form the foundation of trustworthy embedded security solutions.
