Editorial response to BBC Click article on IoT Device Security
Last week, we read in a BBC Click article how security researchers were able to access two different home EV chargers and take control of them. They were able to switch the devices on and off, remove access from the owners and they were also able to successfully demonstrate how these vulnerabilities could be used to access the home network, potentially eavesdropping, via the chargers.Rpi Com...

How does an OTA Firmware Update work?
Firmware updates are necessary to ensure the performance of embedded devices and to remove the software bugs that could impair their performance. It is inefficient to have technicians perform updates locally on IoT devices, at scale in IoT projects it becomes too costly or even impossible to manage. To top it off, there are security concerns, that if IoT devices are not properly patched for vulner...Read the article
Previewing the Beagle V
Beagleboard.org has joined forces with Seeed and StarFive to launch the Beagle V . The Beagle V has the advantage of being a low cost board that allows developers to access RISC V capability which has tremendous advantages in industrial IoT applications. The strategic idea behind the partnership is to bring RISC V capability to a much broader open source audience. Beagle V boards have already b...Read the article
What are the IoT security threats?
Implementing a system for provisioning OTA software updates is part of best practice in a strategy to deal with IoT security threats. The best way is to put in place a Zero trust architecture . OTA updates can be scheduled to deliver CVE updates automatically and to scale and to anticipate and patch vulnerabilities minimising the threat vectors. What are the threat types that need to be consider...Read the article
What is OTA Update?
OTA update management is the process of remotely updating the entire root file system, performing a firmware update, or an application update over the air. This means that the update does not need to be locally managed by an on-site technician with a USB key or other method requiring physical proximity to the device in the field. In automotive where you have CAN-bus-connected devices, performing a...Read the article
