Addressing Security Vulnerabilities at the Source

A Guide to Using Static Source Code Analysis to Develop More Secure Embedded SoftwareMany 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.

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can do to improve software security while reducing development timeMany IoT products lack proper security due to outdated software development practices.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.

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.

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compliance using static analysis toolsMany embedded systems and "connected” IoT products lack proper security due to outdated software development practices.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.

ISO 26262 & Automotive Electronics Development

Compliance standards, especially those that involve relatively new functional safety elements, will likely add additional requirements to the development process. But ISO 26262, in particular, will add more than new requirements to the product life cycle for automotive hardware-software systems. This Functional Safety standard will act as a framework impacting integrated requirements traceability, risk management, validation, verification, documentation and collaboration throughout the systems engineering “V” model life cycle process (see Figure). ISO 26262 will also require the qualification of tools used to create automotive systems. This paper examines the impact of the standard on the development process and support tool chains for automotive electronics.
