Introduction to the Cambridge Wireless Connected Devices SIG by SIG Champion Antony Rix of The Technology Partnership (TTP)
Introduction to our joint sponsors from George Acris of Microlease
Security and the Internet of Things; Nick Hunn, CTO, WiFore Consulting / Connected Devices SIG Champion
Flatpacked Wireless Security; Daniel Ryan, Research and Development Engineer, Nordic Semiconductor
Daniel’s talk will cover the practical aspects of implementing a proprietary security solution for a low-power low-cost wireless chip. Using Nordic's Gazell Pairing protocol as an example, Daniel will discuss the advantages and risks of using non-standards based security. Strong encryption and authentication is a good starting point, but what confidence can you have against attacks based on its physical implementation, unique to your device? This all has to be done with an eye on cost and power consumption, while making it as easy as possible for customers to pick it up and start using it.
Weightless Security; Amyas Phillips, Chair, Weightless SIG Security Group
Weightless is a standard for wide-area machine to machine communications having very low total cost of ownership. Achieving this requires strictly minimising overheads due to network management and security on messaging sent over the air. This talk will briefly introduce Weightless 1.0 and describe how its security approach is designed to facilitate m2m applications.
Security for the Wireless Internet of Things; Robin Heydon, Global Standards, CSR
The Internet of Things changes how we have to think of wireless security. Pairing and device to device bonding is no longer a viable technology for the billions of wireless sensors that will be scattered around. This talk will examine the problems and suggest some possible solutions that can provide islands of security, along with easy installation
RFID – the good, the bad and the ugly; David Johnston, Senior Information Assurance Consultant, Mass Consulting
David will discuss the implementation of RFID technologies on the education sector, through integrating chips into our passports, and also focus on Disney Land’s $1 billion Magic + system to explore the good, the bad and the ugly of RFID technologies.
