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 […]

Improving the management and security of your AWS IoT resources with tagging

Improving the management and security of your AWS IoT resources with tagging

Solution providers operating environments such as smart building, utilities, manufacturing systems, and connected products offer business-to-business services often based on IoT platforms deployed in multitenant deployments. Securely managing those resources by use case, types, locations and by tenants can sometime be hard. Creating hierarchical grouping of things is a common pattern, but it does not […]
