Building a safe and secure embedded world

Designing secure communications for IoT systems

This course provides a foundation in secure communications needed to develop a secure IoT network. We begin by introducing the most commonly used cryptographic algorithms and how they are used in the Transport layer security (TLS) protocol.

We then use this knowledge to design an X.509 certificate based IoT network using Message Queued Telemetry Transport (MQTT) which can manage large numbers of connected devices. The course is workshop based with all materials and PC’s provided.

This course is also ideally attended alongside either the 2-day Middleware course, or the Using an RTOS course.

The course is delivered by our resident ARM Specialist, Trevor Martin who is also a published author and widely recognised authority on Cortex-M cores.
