IT-security for Embedded Systems

At the Embed­ded World in Nürn­berg, the inter­na­tion­al lead­ing fair for embed­ded sys­tems, our founder and CEO Dr. Chris­t­ian Zenger gave a lec­ture on it-secu­ri­ty and prod­uct pira­cy in the Inter­net of Things (IoT).

When it comes to the dig­i­ti­za­tion of smart prod­ucts, integri­ty, con­fi­den­tial­i­ty and secu­ri­ty are often not suf­fi­cient­ly con­sid­ered by man­u­fac­tur­ers – although espe­cial­ly pri­va­cy and data secu­ri­ty are con­sid­ered as crit­i­cal suc­cess fac­tors. The chal­lenges of deployed secu­ri­ty sys­tems often lie in device authen­ti­ca­tion and key estab­lish­ment. Dr. Zenger pre­sent­ed an overview over dif­fer­ent cat­e­gories of key man­age­ment and result­ing advan­tages and dis­ad­van­tages. The goal was to iden­ti­fy a solu­tion that reduces the secu­ri­ty risk, has a good cost-val­ue ratio and is at the same time flex­i­ble and long-term oper­a­tional.

The Internet of Things: At the area of conflict between simplicity and security

At the 13. Pader­borner day of IT-secu­ri­ty Dr. Chris­t­ian Zenger informed about estab­lished and new secu­ri­ty solu­tions for the dig­i­ti­za­tion of IoT prod­ucts – ide­al­ly, sim­plic­i­ty and secu­ri­ty are inte­grat­ed in suit­able solu­tions. The con­fer­ence took place from 21.–22. March at Uni­ver­si­ty of Pader­born and offers infor­ma­tion and expe­ri­ence exchange about chal­lenges and solu­tions for cur­rent IT-secu­ri­ty-prob­lems.

Digitization and security for the building of the future

At this year’s inter­sec con­fer­ence for net­worked safe­ty engi­neer­ing at Frank­furt, Dr. Chris­t­ian Zenger pre­sent­ed new secu­ri­ty solu­tions for the intel­li­gent key man­age­ment in the IoT ecosys­tem.
