Project partner NXP published an article to illustrate the importance of proper encryption for numerous IoT solutions. With the Internet of Things, devices become more powerful than ever, while at the same time they become more susceptible to tampering and hacking. Nobody wants its baby phone to be used to spy on you, or to mine bitcoins.
In the article, the authors discuss some of the challenges builders of modern IoT systems face, especially with regards to complying to the upcoming GDPR. Research done within the scope of Flex4Apps is helping NXP build solutions that can be deployed by IoT vendors so they can safely and securely benefit from this IoT wave.
