Communications and Authentications

NFC and CryptoAuthentication

All Aboard! The embedded design train is leaving the station. In this week’s Fish Fry we’re getting into some serious embedded design business. We’re talking about the newest in component security and the wonders of near field communications (NFC).  My first guest is Greg Proehl of STMicroelectronics. Greg and I are going to get into the who, what, when, and how of NFC and why you might need it for your next design. Also this week, we’re checking out the newest security algorithms and component authentication with Alex Dean of Atmel. Alex and I chat about the differences between symmetric and asymmetric key algorithms and what elliptic curve cryptography is all about.
