AWS re:Inforce 2019: Amazon FreeRTOS Security Best Practices (FND212)

Published on Jun 26, 2019

Amazon FreeRTOS is an open-source operating system for cloud-connected embedded devices. As customers start working on embedded Internet of Things projects, they ask AWS for security best practices. In this session, we discuss provisioning, device authentication and authorization, secure software updates, and monitoring. Finally, we show these lifecycle considerations in context by demonstrating an over-the-air firmware update to an embedded developer board, highlighting the many security-relevant steps in the workflow.
