During the last edition of Trustech
, Oracle held a session related to IoT Device Edge Security :
The Internet of Things enables devices to connect to an IoT Cloud, in order to collect and to analyze their data in real time in order to improve business solutions. But how much do you trust data which are analyzed ? The device edge is usually the poor relative of the IoT landscape, and its security is often overlooked. Cost, power consumption, time to market are main drivers to device deployment, but security must be factored in, or the whole ecosystem is at risk.
The session showed how IoT devices can take benefits of Oracle Java Card. Indeed, Java Card can be placed at the origin of two fundamentals axis:
- The ability to abstract the different security hardware. In particular : different form factors of a Secure Element.
- The capacity to run the IoT security uses cases. Such as securing the network access, the device identity and management as well as access to sensitive peripherals.
