Prevention-First Cybersecurity: Why Detection Just Isn’t Good Enough Anymore

In this week’s podcast, Pete Nicoletti (Check Point Software) and I chat about the top three cybersecurity threats today and how Check Point Software’s prevention-first strategy can help address these issues. Also this week, I check out a recent study from the University of Copenhagen that suggests the first life in our solar system started on Mars.

Chimera GPNPU Blends CPU, DSP, and NPU into New Category of Hybrid Processor

According to Greek mythology, the Chimera (a.k.a. Chimaera) was a monstrous fire-breathing hybrid creature that was composed of different animal parts. These days, the term "chimera" has come to describe (a) any mythical or fictional creature with parts taken from various animals, (b) anything composed of very disparate parts, or (c) anything perceived as wildly imaginative, implausible, or dazzling. … Read More → "Chimera GPNPU Blends CPU, DSP, and NPU into New Category of Hybrid Processor"

Looming Crypto Crisis Rides In With Quantum Computing

It seems, increasingly, like writing technology articles is becoming nothing more than covering a long list of unfolding crises. The crisis du jour is the imminent breakdown of cryptographic security, thanks to the expected arrival of quantum computers. Today’s cryptography relies heavily on implementations of RSA public-key cryptography, which is now used pervasively for data encryption and decryption in networking and computing. RSA encryption – named … Read More → "Looming Crypto Crisis Rides In With Quantum Computing"

Software and Automotive Safety — Siemens  In the realm of automotive designs, safety must reign above all else. But the question remains: how can we innovate within the constraints of today’s safety standards? In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Rob Bates from Siemens about the role ISO 26262 plays when it comes to COTS and open … Read More → "Software and Automotive Safety — Siemens"
Security Regulations Drive Requirements — Silicon Labs and Mouser Electronics  IoT Security certification schemes can be complex, but security identities and security certification inheritance can make this aspect of your IoT design quite a bit easier. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Mike Dow from Silicon Labs about the current state of global security regulations, the difference between physical and … Read More → "Security Regulations Drive Requirements — Silicon Labs and Mouser Electronics"
Medical Device Security – Mentor  In the new era of connected medical devices, securing embedded systems has become more important than ever. But, there is a lot medical device designers can borrow from current best-practices for embedded security in general. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Robert Bates from Mentor about strategies and challenges for … Read More → "Medical Device Security – Mentor"
Keeping Your Linux Device Secure — Siemens   Embedded security is an ongoing process, not a one-time effort. Even after your design is shipped, security vulnerabilities are certain to be discovered – even in things like the operating system. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Kathy Tufto from Siemens, about how to make a plan to keep … Read More → "Keeping Your Linux Device Secure — Siemens"
Maxim’s First Secure Micro with ChipDNA PUF Technology — Maxim Integrated and Mouser Electronics   Most applications today demand security, and that starts with your microcontroller. In order to get a truly secure MCU, you need a root of trust such as a physically unclonable function (PUF). In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Kris Ardis of Maxim Integrated about how the Maxim MAX32520 MCU … Read More → "Maxim’s First Secure Micro with ChipDNA PUF Technology — Maxim Integrated and Mouser Electronics"
Series 2 Product Security — Silicon Labs and Mouser Electronics  Side channel attacks such as differential power analysis (DPA) present a serious threat to our embedded designs. If we want to defend our systems from DPA and similar attacks, it is critical that we have a secure boot and root of trust. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Gregory Guez … Read More → "Series 2 Product Security — Silicon Labs and Mouser Electronics"
