Embedded devices tend to be linked to other devices via a wide array of technologies and often susceptible to targeted attacks. This course identifies security issues inherent to embedded devices and their deployment environments. You will also learn about the appropriate constraint of functionality from a security standpoint, and techniques to prevent common vulnerabilities.
On successful completion of this course, learners should have the knowledge and skills to:
- Discuss how limitations of embedded devices impact security
- Describe how to implement secure updates and factory resets
- Identify techniques for reducing the attack surface
- Describe common vulnerabilities and how to prevent them
