Unlock the value of embedded security IP to build secure IoT products at scale

Introduction IoT product development crosses several domains of expertise from embedded design to communication protocols and cloud computing. Because of this complexity “end-to-end” or “edge-to-cloud” IoT security is becoming a challenging concept in the industry. Edge in many cases refers to the device as a single element in the edge-to-cloud chain. But the device must […]

Ensure Secure Communication with AWS IoT Core Using the Certificate Vending Machine Reference Application

X.509 certificates are used to ensure secure communication between IoT devices and AWS IoT Core. Devices use these certificates to connect to AWS IoT Core using TLS mutual authentication. AWS IoT Core uses TLS mutual authentication to encrypt data as it moves between AWS IoT Core and other devices or other AWS services. A X.509 certificate […]

Setting Up Just-in-Time Provisioning with AWS IoT Core

In an earlier blog post about just-in-time registration of device certificates, we discussed how just-in-time registration (JITR) can be used to activate device certificates and attach policies to the certificates immediately after the device is auto-registered. JITR triggers a registration event. You must create an AWS IoT Core rule to listen for the registration event […]
