SecureRF’s IoT Security Solutions Available on the Arrow Chameleon96 Community Board

Published March 13, 2017 by SecureRF in Embedded Systems, Internet of Things, IoT Security, News & Events

SecureRF’s asymmetric (public-key) cryptographic protocols are available on the new Arrow Chameleon96 community board. The company’s security tools enable deployment of small, fast and ultra-low-energy solutions providing integrity, authentication and non-repudiation for IoT devices. IoT devices are often deployed with little or no protection because most security solutions do not have acceptable runtimes, need a network connection, and require labor-intensive administration of a universal key […]


IoT Security News — Detection Improves,
But Gaps Remain

Published March 9, 2017 by SecureRF in News & Events

While IoT security hacks and ransomware attacks have been on the rise, the ability to detect attacks and take remedial action has improved. As evidenced by the IoT-security news items below, IT security staff can spot some types of attacks during or immediately after they occur – but in some cases, even the most stringent precautions are no match for determined hackers. Toy Hack via […]
