IoT / Embedded Security

For those who are interested in a deeper insight into the topics of security, cryptography and cyber security, we offer a 2 days course on demand. If you are interested, please send us a short mail and we will be happy to get in touch with you.

Course Description

An introduction to the topics security and cryptography with focus on the special requirements of embedded systems. Amongst others we present methods for secure booting, secure updates, but also topics such as security in networks.

This training deals with topics such as:
Infiltration of malware, security of PLCs, introduction to basic cryptographic procedures, application of firewalls including the latest kernel technologies, IMS, PAM, white list, demonstration of Linux-based solutions and even BDEW criteria and/or Common Criteria.
Generally speaking, it is about the "hardening" of embedded devices. And derived from this, it is about the necessity of updates (concept) and correct distribution (exemplary ELBE). Finally, an example will show you how data can be transferred "securely" from the sensor to the mobile application.


To participate in this course, basic knowledge of the Linux operating system is expected as well as experience in dealing with the shell.
