Securing the Internet of Things: Connected Cars

By Ranjeet Khanna

October 18, 2017

If not properly secured, connected cars threaten to expose sensitive consumer information. With data being passed between so many different connected channels, it’s easier than ever for hackers to get their hands on personally identifiable information. It is very difficult to select a public key or a set of public keys that can be trusted for a long period of time. If the wrong public key is used, a website can be bricked until the server header expires. The wrong key could be provided accidentally or by an attacker. As in many cases, a site can be bricked where the administrator knows nothing about HPKP, or it’s been redirected by an attack.

Bad Actors Catalyst Behind New Standards for Code Signing

By Bruce Morton

February 06, 2017

Code Signing is a cryptographic process to digitally sign executables and scripts. The signature confirms the software author or publisher’s identity, and provides integrity by guarantying the software has not been altered since it was signed. Minimum Requirements for Code Signing will increase Internet security by setting a new bar to prevent private keys from being compromised. The requirements will also provide a better mechanism to have code signing certificates revoked limiting the proliferation of malware. The result will benefit application software suppliers, online businesses, and of course, software users globally.

A Fresh Take on PKI

By Josh Jabs

September 22, 2016

In August, Gartner issued a report titled PKI Is Gearing Up for the Internet of Things. While IOT is an important aspect of what’s addressed in the report and a foundational aspect of digital business (and something we’re really excited about), the focus on IoT in the title somewhat undervalues the breadth of content covered in the report.
