Identifying IoT device certificates with a revoked intermediate CA using AWS IoT Device Defender

Introduction Dynamically verifiable device identity is a foundational component of a Zero Trust Architecture (ZTA). Ongoing dynamic evaluation of identity and trust requires complete and timely visibility into relevant components of that identity. Active device certificates issued by a revoked intermediate Certificate Authority (CA) can pose a security threat due to the intermediate CA being […]

Enhancing IoT device security using Hardware Security Modules and AWS IoT Device SDK

Introduction Security of operations and security of data are among the top priorities of customers dealing with sensitive information or operating in highly regulated markets. Internet of Things (IoT) customers have the additional challenge of enabling high security standards for IoT communications to their cloud platforms. Data encryption with asymmetric algorithms and cryptographic keys are […]

Training the Amazon SageMaker object detection model and running it on AWS IoT Greengrass – Part 3 of 3: Deploying to the edge

Post by Angela Wang and Tanner McRae, Senior Engineers on the AWS Solutions Architecture R&D and Innovation team This post is the third in a series on how to build and deploy a custom object detection model to the edge using Amazon SageMaker and AWS IoT Greengrass. In the previous 2 parts of the series, we walked […]

How to reduce latency with Amazon Kinesis Video Streams – Part 2

In this, part 2 on how to reduce latency in media managed by Amazon Kinesis Video Streams (KVS) I describe the techniques in which to configure KVS, the media producer and the media player for optimal latency settings. Then, I introduce the Amazon Kinesis Video Stream Web Viewer and perform a number of experiments on […]

How to reduce latency with Amazon Kinesis Video Streams – Part 1

In this two part series I describe how to reduce latency of streaming media managed by Amazon Kinesis Video Streams and how less than 2-second latency can be delivered with robust video quality across a variety of network conditions. Then, I provide a practical demonstration showing that with the Amazon Kinesis Video Stream Web Viewer, […]

Introducing new MQTTv5 features for AWS IoT Core to help build flexible architecture patterns

Introduction We are excited to announce that AWS IoT Core now supports MQTTv5 features that help enhance communications of large-scale device deployments and innovate device messaging patterns. Customers who already have MQTTv3.1.1 deployments can make use of the new MQTTv5 features as AWS IoT Core provides seamless integration between both versions and supports heterogeneous deployments […]

Improve your security posture with AWS IoT Device Defender direct integration with AWS Security Hub

Introduction We are excited to announce that AWS IoT Device Defender is now integrated with AWS Security Hub. This integration allows you to ingest alarms and their attributes from audit and detect features in one central location, without custom coding. This will help you offload or reduce complexity of managing disparate workflows from multiple security […]

Connect to remote devices using AWS IoT Secure Tunneling

Introduction When devices are deployed behind restricted firewalls at remote sites, you need a way to gain access to those devices for troubleshooting, configuration updates, and other operational tasks. This is where, secure tunneling, a feature of AWS IoT Device Management has been helping customers to do remote tasks. To help elevate customers even further, AWS has […]

Importing AWS IoT Device Defender audit and detect findings into Security Hub

Introduction In this post, you’ll learn how the integration of IoT security findings into AWS Security Hub works, and you can download AWS CloudFormation templates to implement the solution. After you deploy the solution, every AWS IoT Device Defender audit and detect finding will be recorded as a Security Hub finding. The findings within Security […]

Designing a Single Pane of Glass for Securing your Globally Deployed IoT-Workload

Introduction Companies are investing in large-scale Internet of Things (IoT) projects and deploying global scale IoT platform such as Deutsche Bahn or Carrier. Enterprises are looking for a solution that offers a multi-tenant Single Pane of Glass Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) which caters to both IT and OT operations. In this blog we will focus […]
