Published on: December 2016

This white paper describes basic security principles that are critical for IoT implementations and then reviews the application of these security principles for an example use case – managing the lifecycle of IoT devices. The white paper discusses embedded security – where hardware and/or software security mechanisms are built into the end devices used in an IoT architecture. The white paper then further focuses on embedded hardware security, where end devices include hardware features and functions to ensure that the appropriate security requirements are implemented and maintained.

I specialize in preventing and defeating the unthinkable – threats through which computers could turn people’s physical lives upside-down. From my start in law enforcement more than 25 years ago, I came to focus on emerging threats of cyber-kinetic attacks – cyberattacks on Internet of Things (IoT) and Industrial Control Systems (ICS) that threaten people’s physical well-being, lives or the environment. Now, as a Partner in PwC, I bring this expertise to businesses to help them defeat these often-overlooked – but potentially deadly – hazards.
