Cryptography Basics for Embedded Developers - Eystein Stenberg, Mender

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Many vulnerabilities and breaches happen due to incorrect use of cryptographic mechanisms like encryption. This talk will cover the basic mechanisms of cryptography, like encryption, signatures, and key storage, looking at how these are used to create important security properties like authentication, confidentiality and integrity. Performance is particularly important for embedded development and we will cover which cryptographic operations are computationally expensive and why. We will highlight implementations of cryptographic mechanisms that help meet the performance needs of embedded devices, including Elliptic Curve Cryptography. We will wrap up with common pitfalls, libraries and tools relevant for secure use of cryptography for embedded devices.
