SemiWiki.com, “The Open Forum of Semiconductor Professionals,” has published an article about quantum computing and its potential to undermine cryptography. Although quantum computers aren’t commercially available today, “you should probably assume that at least nation-state hackers will be able to crack your non-quantum-resistant cryptography today or very soon and therefore all responsible systems should plan to be resistant to quantum attacks. Solutions from vendors like SecureRF will necessarily be required in any system used in commerce, automotive, medical and other secure applications.”

Arrow plans to announce three 96Boards at the Embedded World 2017 including the Chameleon96 based on Intel/Altera Cyclone V FPGA + ARM SoC.
One of the first use of the FPGA will be IoT security with the board including a “quantum-resistant” Ironwood Key Agreement Protocol, and WalnutDSA Digital Signature Algorithm reference design from SecureRF.
Grand View Research has published a IoT Warehouse Management report which includes a section on SecureRF. The full title is “Internet of Things (IoT) in Warehouse Management Market Analysis By Solution (Warehouse Automation, Workforce Management, Inventory Management, EDI, Tracking), By Device (Sensing Devices, Gateways), By Service, And Segment Forecasts, 2014 – 2025.”
The global IoT warehouse management market was valued at USD 2.27 billion in 2015, owing to the increasing penetration of connected devices across the globe. The growing number of machine-to-machine applications, including video surveillance, smart meters, transportation, health monitoring, and asset tracking, is anticipated to drive the connected device market demand.

CB Insights lists 78 Cybersecurity startups on the front lines of IoT/IIoT protection and then maps them by category.
“As internet-connected hardware proliferates, there’s been a corresponding rise in cyber security threats, with malicious hackers using these new digital entry points to infiltrate and disrupt systems. In turn, startups focused on securing the Internet of Things (IoT) and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) are emerging as important players in the cybersecurity industry.”
“We used the CB Insights database to identify 78 private companies at the intersection of cybersecurity and connected hardware, which includes: critical infrastructure, mobile phones, connected devices, enterprise endpoints (defined as laptop computers, desktop computers, servers, and mobile devices connected to an enterprise-network), and connected cars. Not all of the categories in our map are mutually exclusive.”
SecureRF is listed as part of the Critical Infrastructure Security area, but could also fit under the connected devices and connected cars categories.

Stacey Higginbotham, a blogger about chips, broadband and the internet of all the things, discusses a report out from BITAG, the Broadband Internet Technical Advisory Group.
She says “the report offers a big vote for encryption of data at all points of its progress. No data should be sent using clear text whether it’s location data for getting weather information or Wi-Fi passwords. There’s a lot of innovation happening in encryption for resource-constrained devices that can help here. Chip technology from ARM is one option, but even encryption from a company like SecureRF or WolfSSL could help.”
She is right, but SecureRF offers a variety of security solutions for resource-constrained IoT devices, not just encryption.

The National Science Foundation’s Enriched Doctoral Training Program (EDT) endeavors to broaden career prospects for Ph.D. graduates in the mathematical sciences. The State University of New York at Buffalo (SUNY at Buffalo) Department of Mathematics’ EDT project is entitled “Experiential Diversity in Graduate Education” (EDGE@UB). It is an initiative is a collaboration between industry and academic partners, including SecureRF. The graduate student assigned to SecureRF will be testing security protocols based on braid groups and finite fields.
