Detect Cryptocurrency Mining Threats on Edge Devices using AWS IoT

Introduction Machine learning (ML) at the edge requires powerful edge requires powerful edge devices with a unique set of requirements. The availability, safety, and security requirements for the edge differ from cloud since they are located at the customer site, outside the data center, and interface directly with operational technology (OT) and the internet. Since […]

Detect water leaks in near real time using AWS IoT

Introduction Water is one of the most precious resources needed for the sustenance of life. However, only 2% of the global water supply is suitable for human consumption. The United States Environmental Protection Association (EPA) estimates that 1.7 trillion gallons, roughly 30 percent of all treated water, is wasted every year in the United States. […]

Connected vehicles telemetry – Processing Protobuf messages with AWS IoT Core

Introduction In connect vehicles applications, telemetry data is usually very extensive, containing structure and unstructured data. To send data over to the Cloud you can use Protocol Buffers (Protobuf – binary format). Protobuf provides the application with an efficient yet well structured compressing mechanism. The built-in protocol documentation makes data serialization and deserialization more manageable […]

Build resilient IoT device applications that remain active using the AWS IoT Device SDKs

Introduction In this blog post, we provide recommendations on how you can build resilient Internet of Things (IoT) device applications using AWS IoT Core, AWS IoT Device SDKs, and MQTT protocol. These recommendations cover: managing your MQTT client, publishing and reception of messages, initiating the device application process, setting up the network connection, performing software […]

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 […]

Monitor AWS IoT connections in near-real time using MQTT LWT

In a connected device, you may need to monitor devices in near-real time to detect error and mitigate actions, Last Will and Testament (LWT) method for MQTT addresses this challenge. LWT is a standard method of MQTT protocol specification that allows to detect abrupt disconnects of devices and to notify other clients about this abrupt […]

How to manage IoT device certificate rotation using AWS IoT

Introduction The Internet of Things (IoT) is transforming business operations and customer experiences across a variety of industries. This unlimited opportunity enables business transformation, but if not implemented correctly, it also brings security, risk, and privacy concerns, compromising your data and brand. In industrial facilities, OT (Operational Technology) environments are leveraging more IT solutions to improve […]

How to implement zero trust IoT solutions with AWS IoT

Introduction Zero trust is often misunderstood. It’s not a product but a security model and associated set of architectural principles and patterns. One of the main challenges customers face is determining how zero-trust principles can be applied to Internet of Things (IoT) and how to get started with incorporating zero trust with Amazon Web Services […]

Build a proof-of-concept IoT solution in under 3 hours with the AWS IoT Device Client

Introduction You may be starting on your IoT journey, or have thousands of devices connected already. Maybe you just built an IoT business application, and want to deploy it to your fleet. You’re looking for a way to build functionality to control, update, monitor, or secure your IoT devices. To guide you through this process […]

Design IoT jobs for rapid large scale device updates with advanced device group target patterns

Customer IoT applications require rapid over the air (OTA) updates to maintain the state of their IoT things. This becomes increasingly important as IoT fleets grow. Jobs for AWS IoT Device Management is a feature to push updates to targeted edge devices. Each job targets devices in static or dynamic AWS IoT thing groups. Static […]
