The weak link of any tech security system lies in physical access to the hardware. Once breached, hackers could potentially decipher any security protocols, accessing IoT firmware or data stored on microcontrollers. This unauthorized access can lead to intellectual property theft, spying on sensitive data, or tampering with the firmware to alter device functionality.
In the IoT landscape, business logic and applications for specific microcontrollers are compiled into well-known opcodes (such as AVR, ARM, or MIPS). Extracting this data from memory chips isn't a challenge for savvy hackers. With a plethora of developer tools at their disposal, reverse-engineering becomes a rather straightforward task.
Many turn to intrusive hardware solutions for memory chip protection, but these require proprietary hardware design and early integration into the IoT project design process. Shield, our innovative security extension for the Brawl IoT virtual machine and developer sandbox, offers an accessible alternative. Shield secures your IoT business logic and applications at the same level as these costly and invasive hardware solutions, but does so within the IoT ecosystem itself.
With Shield, each IoT device in your ecosystem receives its firmware encrypted, ensuring each device's firmware is unique and safeguarding against interception, modification, or theft of intellectual property during delivery. Additionally, a real-time security layer protects the IoT firmware and memory banks through an encryption suite, warding off third-party snooping and modification attempts.
By leveraging RIoT Secure's technology stacks, your IoT deployment will be both straightforward and robustly secure. Shield is our pledge to the IoT community, ensuring the safest and most secure lifecycle management platform. We're committed to the relentless pursuit of the most advanced and reliable security solutions for the future of IoT.
