10 Properties of Secure Embedded Systems

This white paper covers the most important security design principles that, if adhered to, give you a fighting chance against any attacker who seeks to gain unauthorized access, reverse engineer, steal sensitive information, or otherwise tamper with your embedded system. The beauty of these 10 principles is that they can be layered together into a cohesive set of countermeasures that achieve a multiplicative effect, making device exploitation significantly more difficult and costly for the attacker. Learn about data-at-rest, secure boot, hardware resource partitioning, software containerization and isolation, and much more.
