Security Threats Impacting the Internet of Things and What Designers of Embedded Systems Can Do to Address Them

Media Advisory: SecureRF CEO and CTO at Embedded World 2019

What: Embedded World 2019 will offer design engineers a wide array of hardware and tools with which to develop IoT devices. Many of those devices will be designed with small 8-, 16- and 32- bit processors that lack the space and/or processing power to run effective security methods to protect against today’s hackers. SecureRF’s authentication and identification methods uniquely address the security threats associated with the IoT and the smallest processors being deployed with 90x faster and more energy efficient performance when compared with current Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) based methods.

Derek Atkins, Chief Technology Officer of SecureRF Corporation will be presenting a technical paper titled, “A Future-proof Performance Enhancement for Secure MCUboot,” on February 28, 2019 at noon, at Conference Counter NCC Ost.

Louis Parks, Chief Executive Officer of SecureRF Corporation is available for interviews at Embedded World 2019 or by phone.

When: February 26 to 28, 2019

Where: Exhibition Centre, 90471 Nürnberg, Germany

Why: SecureRF offers security solutions that uniquely address the requirements of resource-constrained devices that are prevalent in the IoT. The company’s solutions are based on Group Theoretic Cryptography, which enables high performance digital signature algorithms and key agreement protocols to be used on the most resource-constrained IoT devices now entering the marketplace. SecureRF’s solutions are also quantum-resistant to all known attacks. Dr. Iris Anshel, the company’s Co-Founder and Chief Scientist and Dr. Dorian Goldfeld, the company’s Co-Founder and Advisor, are world-renowned mathematicians and cryptographers who pioneered the application of Group Theoretic Cryptography.

SecureRF was recognized by Linely with its Analysts’ Choice award for Best Technology in 2017, by Arm for “Best Contribution to IoT Security” award for 2017 and as a 2018 Arm TechCon Innovation Award finalist for “Design Team of the Year.”
