Atmel – Smarter Security – Overview
The Internet of Things (IoT) is your new frontier. You’re empowering your customers and creating new and innovative products. But there are dangers in any new frontier, and the IoT introduces vulnerabilities throughout the network. Whether it’s the connected appliances in your home, or a vast network of devices accessed by cloud services over the internet, you want to be able to control what and who can gain access to your network ecosystem. But how do you know which devices are authorized to be a part of your ecosystem and access the benefits of your network? How do you know if a network node is a device at all and not someone pretending to be a device so they can enter your network? Your home, your car, your office building, your product and its branded accessories are all ecosystems where you need explicit control over membership for security and a consistently positive user experience. So how can you protect your customers—and your business? Controlling membership of an ecosystem is no trivial task especially since software and firmware is nearly impossible to track and can be easily worked around. A network of thousands of device manufacturers, each with dozens of product lines, and each of those products with numerous software revisions makes consistent ecosystem control an unmanageable task very quickly. But, by building smart security into your networks and devices from the beginning, you can simplify this process in a secure and highly-scalable method by uniquely identifying each approved device. Authentication is so fast it is invisible to the user, and it can provide the seemless user experience your customers seek. Atmel can take care of all the security logistics for the brand owner and device maker for markets ranging from healthcare and wearables, to smart home and industrial. Let us show you how.

How Safe Are Blockchains? It Depends.

> Because the consensus protocol is energy consuming, the majority of users operate in countries with cheap electricity

> These thefts are not a failure of the security of bitcoin, but of personal security; the thefts are the result of storing a private key insecurely
