The 1-Hour Security Bootcamp

How do you keep your company from being front page news for the wrong reasons? You can start by implementing a rigorous security solution on your embedded devices. The most common reason developers give for not using security is that they perceive it to be too hard, so they will just sit back until they are forced to imbue their devices with security by either their customers or the government... or until they get hacked and shamed. Good security is hard, but with the right tools, it doesn't have to be that way. In this session, we're going to take a holistic approach to implementing security by examining the Chain of Trust, hardware requirements, and working in a secure workflow to minimize the attack surface a hacker can use to attack your system. We're going to show you how easy it can be to enable a high degree of security in just a few easy steps.

RSA1024 should not be used any more.

I completely agree, MM. As computing hardware gets stronger, RSA becomes more susceptible to various exploits in RSA that make you have to keep upping the key size. This is especially a problem in embedded systems that cannot update their crypto algorithms in the field. ECC has thus far proven fairly resilient to cryptanalysis, so given its smaller key size and lighter-weight algorithm, it's become the go-to crypto system for embedded devices.
