As consumer angst grows over Internet of Things security and performance, IoT startups are surfacing with schemes for safeguarding IoT devices from evolving attacks while fixing a rash of software glitches.
Chip makers such as Arm Ltd. are investing heavily in new architectures designed to shore up IoT security from hub to edge. This week, a startup emerged from stealth mode with a “micro-platforms” framework for continuously updating embedded gear, a feature that among other things addresses easy-to-hack factory security settings on IoT devices.
Foundries.io said its IoT security architecture includes Linux and Zephyr distributions. The startup said the latter version is the first distribution of the Linux Foundation’s Zephyr Project developing a real-time operating system (RTOS) for IoT embedded devices.
