How to develop distributed IoT applications using the AWS IoT Greengrass PubSub SDK

Introduction IoT applications are synonymous with the Publish / Subscribe (PubSub) model where distributed services communicate via event triggered messages. The PubSub model offers flexibility in design and is well suited to event-driven distributed IoT systems. However, this flexibility puts many design decisions in the hands of the developer that creates dependencies across systems, services […]

Simplify multi-account device provisioning and certificate authority registration when using AWS IoT Core

Customers often manage multiple AWS accounts to separate their development, staging, and production environments. When deploying IoT workloads on AWS IoT Core, customers usually use unique X.509 certificates for identifying devices and certificate authorities (CAs) for validating the signature of device certificates during provisioning. In this blog, we will demonstrate how to use the newly […]
