Wait !   A security webinar.. with a downloadable PPT ?    Hmmmmmm  PPT safe?  Mayyybeeeeee... or not...

 

 

Iron

[Listens Archive] FPGA accelerated Ethernet specialized industrial camera.

Iron

[Viewed Archive]  Using PC/104 COTS Embedded System (ES) running DOS.  Files transferred over Enet via FTP with Username & Password required from ES. Remote User Interface (Enet) has UN & PW at the Operator Terminal, but not at ES end. Although designed to run on non-public network, it CAN also run on any network! 

Iron

Listened to archive. Answers to questions.  30 Yrs experience. Design Printers of labels and receipts for hospitals, restaurants, retail, etc. Connected via tcpip,serial,usb. Some have encrypted keys to authorize features.  No particular protection from reverse engineering (other then convoluted code :-) ). Most code done inhouse including rtos and communication stacks.  Currently working on bluetooth interface.

Iron

Listening to archive. Thanks for the info.

@All- Ok, CU all 2morrow!

Iron

@All- Any other questions?

Iron

rsar- Agent-Based execution models- not sure what they are. Can you descfribe?

Iron

@WarrenM -- Thanks.  I look forward to hearing about it Friday.

Iron

CPU- I'm not up to date on security on cellular, but based on the number of reports of 'hacking' of phone conversations and text messages it seems like more security is needed...

Iron

Same time tomorrow. Thanks.

Iron

Hunt- I don't plan on talking about removable device security, but we might be able to talk about it come in one of the examples on Friday. I will see if I can include it. thanx for the suggestion!

Iron

Rsar- Many devices allow JTAG to be turned 'off' after board level tests are completed. Makes returns testing more difficult, but it is an option. Some allow for JTAG to be turned back 'on' if a secret key is known...

Iron

?If you can comment on this today: How easily hacked are the cellular networks? I.e. capturing and decoding data transmitted over a 2G, 3G, or 4G network? We have heard how easy it was during the analog days - how about with today's networks?

Iron

DKH- IoT looks to be using some standard security capabilities but I expect some new standards to develop that take less processing power and that might use security 'servers' instead of securing every device. Will be an interesting evolution...

Iron

Thanks Warren & Jennifer

Iron

How are agent-based execution models used to secure field devices?

Sky- If you don't need generic network connectivirty that is probably best. Serial ports are very difficult to 'hack' unless they are really valuable targets...

Iron

What mechanisms are used to protect JTAG interfaces on a PCB?

 

TIP: Don't superencrypt ROT13 using ROT13 ......

Iron

CPU- I don't have enough information to give you any best-in-class worst-in-class information, so it is best for you to dig into the details on specific manufacturers yourself. We will talk more in future classes about specific features you can check on...

Iron

?How is security being addressed by the IoT committees?

 

Iron

?Will you be able to comment on securing removable flash devices with drive encryption?

Iron

? Is security mainly an issue only for things attached by IP address, or is it also an issue for items connected by serial or GPIB? I guess I'm wondering if security can be improved by not using ethernet on the "local" side of a gateway.

?We sometimes use PIC MCUs that have a code protection mechanisms against read and write. How do these compare to other chip manufacturers' own code security mechanisms? Which MCU maker has the best protection? The weakest?

Iron

DKH- Only a small fraction of PCB fabricators would ever cause a problem, but it is best to use ones who have been around for a while. Always get recommendations too!

Iron

Thank you! See you tomorrow.

 

Iron

Pix- we will talk about counterfeit detection in more detail tomorrow. Stay tuned!

Iron

?What would you suggest to identify counterfeit chips?

Is the PCB prototyping industry secure? Are they generaly reputable?

 

Iron

if you have any questions just use a "?" at the beginning of your post so I can see it easily.

Iron

Thanks Warren, will have to pick up the first part on archive, maybe better luck tomorrow.

Iron

Thank you for the lecture.

Iron

What would you suggset to identify counterfeitght chips?

 

Thanks Warren, Jennifer, and Digi-Key!!

Iron

Thank you, Warren. Interesting, and not sleep-inducing! :-)

Thank you Warren and Jennifer.

Sorry had internet issues came in late.  Test Systems for downhole motors and pumps

Iron

15 years design experience

Iron

best we can for legacy systems, but new systems undergo a vulnerabilty analysis for the hardware and appropriate measures are taken.  Such as selecting CPU/MCU that are more secure, including flash memory on lower layers of the die, and encrypted external flash storage

 

Iron

not currently designing in IP protection but expect to

Embedded app code is encrypted and a task within the RTOS decripts it. Could be more robust.  ALso thinking about some anti hacking code in the network modules

 

pin based security; code read locking (standard); multiple levels of checks for connected device; read only info over wireless.

Iron

Protection: Some communications encryption. Security fuse on micro. 

Iron

Counterfit not a big issue due to small market for item designs.

 

Iron

nothing at the moment

Iron

Not yet, but will when we have our first network firmware update product.

Not permitted to disclose methods...

Iron

Would prefer not to disclose methods in this forum.

Iron

not currently doing anything to protect IP.

Iron

Not doing anything since nothing is networked.

Would prefer not to disclose methods in this forum.

Iron

currently closed system (from connectivity) is the only security...need to change that

Iron

Standard built-in security so far.

Iron

Not yet, but we'd like to.

Iron

Warren's question was: Do you do anything in your designs to protect your companies IP? What techniques do you currently use?

Iron

My controls are currently islands-of-automation, and not connected to the internet, or to each other. I would like to connect them to the internet to have an opportunity for remote view, remote troubleshooting, remote code updates/ enhancements. These systems are deployed on ships - out of range of cellphone networks, but usually have some sort of sattelite network with a low bandwidth and a Cisco router, and latency issues.
