The great strides made over the past decade in the complexity and network functionality of embedded systems have significantly enhanced their attractiveness for use in critical applications such as medical devices and military communications. However, this expansion into critical areas has presented embedded engineers with a serious new problem: their designs are now being targeted by the same malicious attackers whose predations have plagued traditional systems for years. Rising concerns about data security in embedded devices are leading engineers to pay more attention to security assurance in their designs than ever before. This is particularly challenging due to embedded devices’ inherent resource constraints such as limited power and memory. Therefore, traditional security solutions must be customized to fit their profile, and entirely new security concepts must be explored. However, there are few resources available to help engineers understand how to implement security measures within the unique embedded context. This new book from embedded security expert Timothy Stapko is the first to provide engineers with a comprehensive guide to this pivotal topic. From a brief review of basic security concepts, through clear explanations of complex issues such as choosing the best cryptographic algorithms for embedded utilization, the reader is provided with all the information needed to successfully produce safe, secure embedded devices. The ONLY book dedicated to a comprehensive coverage of embedded security! Covers both hardware- and software-based embedded security solutions for preventing and dealing with attacks Application case studies support practical explanations of all key topics, including network protocols, wireless and cellular communications, languages (Java and C/++), compilers, web-based interfaces, cryptography, and an entire section on SSL

New generations of IT users are increasingly abstracted from the underlying devices and platforms that provide and safeguard their services. As a result they may have little awareness that they are critically dependent on the embedded security devices that are becoming pervasive in daily modern life. Secure Smart Embedded Devices, Platforms and Applications provides a broad overview of the many security and practical issues of embedded devices, tokens, and their operation systems, platforms and main applications. It also addresses a diverse range of industry/government initiatives and considerations, while focusing strongly on technical and practical security issues. The benefits and pitfalls of developing and deploying applications that rely on embedded systems and their security functionality are presented. A sufficient level of technical detail to support embedded systems is provided throughout the text, although the book is quite readable for those seeking awareness through an initial overview of the topics. This edited volume benefits from the contributions of industry and academic experts and helps provide a cross-discipline overview of the security and practical issues for embedded systems, tokens, and platforms. It is an ideal complement to the earlier work, Smart Cards Tokens, Security and Applications from the same editors.

Data security is an important requirement for almost all, if not all, information-oriented applications such as e-commerce, digital signature, secure Internet, etc. All these services use encrypted data. Cryptography is a milliner science that was the key to the secret of ancient Rome and a fundamental piece in the Second World War. Today, it is a star in the computation world. Several operating systems, data base systems or simple filling systems provide the user with cryptographic functions that allow controlled data scrambling. Modern cryptology, which is the basis of information security techniques, started in the late 1970's and developed in the 1980's. As communication networks were spreading deep into society, the need for secure communication greatly promoted cryptographic research. The need for fast but secure cryptographic systems is growing bigger. Therefore, dedicated hardware for cryptography is becoming a key issue for designers. With the spread of reconfigurable hardware such as FPGAs, hardware implementations of cryptographic algorithms became cost-effective. The focus of this book is on all aspects of cryptographic hardware and embedded systems. This includes design, implementation and security of such systems. The content of this book is divided into four main parts, each of which is organised in three chapters, with the exception of the last one.

Computer networking and cybersecurity are challenging subjects, partly because of the constant rise and fall of related technologies and IT paradigms. As the title implies, much focus of this book is on providing the audience with practical, as well as, theoretical knowledge necessary to build a solid ground for a successful professional career. A Practical Introduction to Enterprise Network and Security Management contains 12 chapters of the correct amount of coverage for a semester or quarter. It balances introductory and fairly advanced subjects on computer networking and cybersecurity to deliver effectively technical and managerial knowledge. It explains sometimes challenging concepts in a manner that students can follow with careful reading. A Practical Introduction to Enterprise Network and Security Management is designed to offer impactful, hands-on learning experiences without relying on a computer lab. First, each chapter comes with practical exercise questions. In the class setting, they are good as individual or group assignments. Many of them are based on simulated or real cases, and take advantage of actual industry products and systems for a reader to better relate theories to practice. Second, there are a number of information-rich screen shots, figures, and tables in each chapter carefully constructed to solidify concepts and thus enhance visual learning. A Practical Introduction to Enterprise Network and Security Management Is written for students studying management information systems, accounting information systems, or computer science in a semester of 15 to 16 weeks, and exposed to the subject for the first time Takes advantage of many real cases and examples, and actual industry products and services (software, hardware, and configurations) so that students can better relate concepts and theories to practice Explains subjects in a systematic, but very practical manner that students can follow through Provides students with practical understanding of both computer networking and cybersecurity Contains highly practical exercise questions, which can be individual or group assignments within or without the class, included in each chapter to reinforce learning. In addition to the thorough technical details, managerial issues including, enterprise network planning, design, and management from the practitioner’s perspective are embedded throughout the text to assist balanced learning. Bearing in mind of the critical importance of security in today’s enterprise networks, the text discusses the implications of network design and management on enterprise security whenever appropriate. Lastly, to reinforce knowledge in security management further, two chapters introduce the fundamentals of cybersecurity in terms of threat types and defense techniques.

Take a practioner’s approach in analyzing the Internet of Things (IoT) devices and the security issues facing an IoT architecture. You’ll review the architecture's central components, from hardware communication interfaces, such as UARTand SPI, to radio protocols, such as BLE or ZigBee. You'll also learn to assess a device physically by opening it, looking at the PCB, and identifying the chipsets and interfaces. You'll then use that information to gain entry to the device or to perform other actions, such as dumping encryption keys and firmware. As the IoT rises to one of the most popular tech trends, manufactures need to take necessary steps to secure devices and protect them from attackers. The IoT Hacker's Handbook breaks down the Internet of Things, exploits it, and reveals how these devices can be built securely. What You’ll Learn Perform a threat model of a real-world IoT device and locate all possible attacker entry points Use reverse engineering of firmware binaries to identify security issues Analyze,assess, and identify security issues in exploited ARM and MIPS based binaries Sniff, capture, and exploit radio communication protocols, such as Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), and ZigBee Who This Book is For Those interested in learning about IoT security, such as pentesters working in different domains, embedded device developers, or IT people wanting to move to an Internet of Things security role.
