Technology Filtered by - Network Security

New Electronics strives to bring you all the latest technology news from the Network Security sector. Advances in electronics are often fast-paced and innovative, so we know that as a design engineer you want to be kept up-to-date with current developments.

Below is a comprehensive list of all the latest electronics technology news from New Electronics.

A critical issue

With more cyber-attacks than ever on critical infrastructure, how can utilities actively counter these growing threats?

Securing national infrastructure

Increasingly hackers are becoming more sophisticated and turning from bank accounts and smart devices to targeting a country’s infrastructure. As a consequence cyber-security has never been more important.

Benchmarking the cost of security

David Maidment, Director of Secure Device Ecosystem, Arm explores why it’s not important to benchmark the cost of security, but instead to benchmark the cost of not following good security practice, and why it's better to get ahead of the curve before regulation comes into play.

How to navigate upcoming regulations for IoT

The complexities of upcoming regulations for IoT and the knock-on effect for manufactures. We investigate how a common approach and a security baseline, such as the PSA Certified framework, can simplify the regulation landscape, allowing manufacturers to achieve fast time-to-market without compromises.

Technology to the rescue

Finding malicious flows hidden in the traffic of millions of connected devices is a huge challenge, but a solution is at hand. By Claire Huckerby-Brown and Richard Parks.

Securing the Things

With the IoT industry calling for common standards and infrastructure it’s fair to say that the industry is very much in its infancy; certainly not mature anyway.

Looking to a secure future

As connected devices have proliferated across homes, organisations, and cities, the range of vulnerabilities has grown as well. Device security must be a primary requirement for any connected device manufacturer, and that requirement starts well before a device ever is shipped to a customer.

5G and the security challenge

5G brings seemingly endless possibilities, but Alex Farrant, senior researcher at Context Information Security, warns that the right cyber security measures are just as important

The race is on

Whether it’s reports on multiple glitches in smart home technology, smart light bulbs being hacked to obtain Wi-Fi credentials or hackers taking control of apps and obtaining location and personal details, is the Internet of Things simply growing too quickly? Is that explosive growth leaving users vulnerable to hackers?

Ensuring reliability

For next-generation designs, today’s network and data centre SoC/systems designers need robust and reliable communications over challenging long-reach channels.

A world connected

This year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC) was described by John Hoffmann, the CEO of the GSMA (the event organisers), as a bringing together of a “global ecosystem spanning multiple sectors and reflecting the expanding role of mobile connectivity.”

Hackers aims for the jackpot

Early in 2018, a crime surfaced in the US that earned the name ATM ”jackpotting”. Perpetrators would target older cash machines and switch their hard drives. The malware they store simply hands over cash to thieves armed with the right codes. It is just one of a range of hardware-level attacks that are now coming to the fore.

The blockchain buzz

Blockchain is the technology behind cryptocurrency, but many have suggested it as a new way to approach security. Bethan Grylls looks at whether there’s any substance behind the hype.

Digital dilemma

As the amount of data soars and computational power accelerates, data centres are set to have a bigger carbon footprint than the aviation industry. What can be done to address this?

A failure to observe even the most basic of security best practices is threatening to derail the IoT

IoT security is notoriously lax leading to headline grabbing attacks that seed fear among consumers and threaten adoption. Typically, only nine percent of vendor budgets go on security implementation and testing. Even if we allow for the fact this low figure may be due to security being outsourced, it’s clear that security is too often, a secondary consideration with production and time-to-market dictating spend.
