Tony Gee, Pen Test Partners, will be giving a talk "Systemic flaws in IoT". As the IoT brings ever more connected capabilities in to our lives we are seeing more and more devices utilising the same backend architecture. We are seeing more and more vendors replicating vulnerabilities across multiple device types, from tracking watches to car alarms. We are seeing zombie vulnerabilities rising from the dead, insecure direct object references which mostly died off back in 2002 are now found on many devices we look at. In this talk we will discuss some of these and show some of our recent research in to the Internet of Things.

Rob Coombs, Arm, will be giving a talk "PSA Certified – building trust in IoT". Platform Security Architecture was announced by Arm in October 2017 as a security framework for IoT. Arm provides the recipe (security architecture documents) and ingredients (open source software, tools, models, dev boards) to help the electronics industry build secure IoT solutions. At Embedded World this year we introduced PSA Certified, a multi-level security evaluation scheme for IoT chips, software and devices. This presentation will provide an introduction to PSA Certified.

Andrew Hood, Amazon Web Services, will be giving a talk "AWS IoT and Alexa in the connected home". AWS IoT services for the connected home bring devices and services together for an integrated, autonomous experience that improves a consumers’ lives. Connected home experiences include everything from voice-controlled lights, house-cleaning robots, machine learning-enabled security cameras, and Wi-Fi routers that troubleshoot for you. Additionally, given that voice control is becoming pervasive across smart homes, these devices can also benefit from using voice services like Alexa for an even more seamless customer experience. Thanks to decreasing costs and increasing options for connectivity, these smart home devices, sensors, and tools can be interlinked to create real-time, contextual, and smart experiences for consumers. Learn how in this session.
