Addressing Security Vulnerabilities in Embedded Applications Using Best Practice Software Development Processes and Standards

An introduction to applying CWE coding guidelines and achieving CERT security compliance using static analysis tools Many embedded systems and "connected” IoT products lack proper security due to outdated software development practices. Organizations now know they need to incorporate security into the software SDLC, yet many lack security expertise and are struggling with how to implement best practices.

Developing Secure Embedded Software

Quality Doesn’t Equal Security Most organization put considerable focus on software quality, but software security is different. Embedded development presents the challenge of coding in a language that’s inherently insecure; and quality assurance does little to ensure security.

How IoT is Making Security Imperative for All Embedded Software

Why embedded software development needs to change and what organizations can do to improve software security while reducing development time Many IoT products lack proper security due to outdated software development practices. Hackers and criminals are acutely aware that many of the security procedures and applications in use today were designed to defend against attacks in the PC era – not current IoT threat vectors. Security isn't a product "add-on" or feature; it must be built in. Learn about the unique challenges of securing embedded applications and how to deploy processes and tools to deliver more secure products faster.

Addressing Security Vulnerabilities at the Source

A Guide to Using Static Source Code Analysis to Develop More Secure Embedded Software Many embedded developers underestimate how vulnerable embedded devices are to cyber-attacks. When security issues do occur, organizations often respond by addressing the symptoms of poor security rather than the root causes.

The Advantages of LWIR SLS Thermal Cameras

A relatively new type of photon detector material for infrared cameras offers a solution for scientists and engineers who need to record fast thermal transients or capture crisp still images of high speed objects or events. This material, called Type II Strained Layer Superlattice, or SLS, can match or exceed most of the performance of analogous detector materials such as indium antimonide (InSb) or mercury cadmium telluride (MCT). This article compares LWIR SLS detectors to MWIR InSb and LWIR MCT detectors, with specific attention to their integration times, temperature ranges, filtering needs, and uniformity.
