How to perform secondary processor over-the-air updates with FreeRTOS

Many embedded architectures include a connectivity processor connected to one or more secondary processors that perform business logic. The ability to perform secondary processor over-the-air (OTA) updates is just as critical as updating the connectivity processor. This is because it allows for low-cost patching of bugs and security vulnerabilities as well as delivering new features […]

Provisioning with a bootstrap certificate in AWS IoT Core

Provisioning with a bootstrap certificate in AWS IoT Core

One of the core tenets of managing IoT devices is provisioning, which is the process of registering a device on a particular platform or a system. When bootstrapping your devices, it’s important to establish mutual authentication between the device and an Internet of Things (IoT) endpoint to prevent threats like man-in-the-middle attacks. Device certificates are by […]
