Security - You’re blindfolded unless you scan for vulnerabilities

“This is a report from a customer project. Here we found several vulnerabilities when scanning a Linux-based device designed for industrial environments.”

Harri Susi, SW Testing & Cyber Security Specialist at Etteplan, is showing us a document that contains a detailed analysis of services provided by an IoT device and how hackers may be able to exploit it. A report like this is the first step towards more secure devices.

Audio in embedded systems

Our world is full of sounds. The wind, birds, traffic, buzz of voices, discussions, radio, music, sirens.

The tablet, mobile phone and laptop are supposed to provide you with a high-quality web connection when at home, at the office, at industrial sites, at the airport and at a sports stadium of 50 000 spectators. Designing a network functioning flawlessly under all circumstances is a challenge for even the most advanced professionals.

All this causes headache for a person responsible for wireless (radio) link performance and operation.
