Mitigating IoT Firmware Risks: It All Comes Down to the Code
Insecure firmware is running on millions (and soon-to-be billions) of devices. Connected cars, coffee pots and cardiac devices house embedded firmware that’s often highly vulnerable and easily hackable. Why? It literally all comes down to the firmware’s code: how it’s constructed, what’s left inside and what’s included from the outside.Think about these three points, which are tied to actual exploitations and hacks:Gaping Holes: The Dyn attack in October 2016 exploited insecure and poo ...
Centrifuge IoT Security Platform VS. VERACODE and Other Static Code Analysis Tools
The Centrifuge IoT Security Platform (CSP), built by former US intelligence offensive cyber operators at Tactical Network Solutions, automatically reverse engineers compiled firmware images to pinpoint security vulnerabilities and holes. It works by extracting the complete root filesystems within firmware images, deconstructing each file down to the byte code level and generating detailed reports revealing vulnerable functions calls.How does CSP compare to VERACODE and other static code ana ...

IoT Attorneys Understand Risk Mitigation
Let’s face it: IoT risk mitigation is abstract and in that vein, can companies clearly and objectively identify their own risk? And, once it’s been identified, can they accurately define concrete steps to mitigate it?Risk identification and, to a lesser degree, mitigation are fuzzy concepts that linger in the atmosphere. Organizations intellectually accept the idea of practicing risk mitigation, but don’t often proactively embrace it until an external trusted advisor mentions the real dang ...
