|Embedded Software||BSEMB1101||3-4 Days|
Embedded Security Boot Camp® is a week-long immersion into the unique challenges of designing and/or retrofitting security into embedded devices. This comprehensive training is a combination of three of our most popular security short courses and includes hands-on exercises. This intense (but fascinating and fun!) educational program has been thoughtfully developed to lead engineers through the steps of architecting and implementing secure smart products, including preventing electronics, firmware, network, and physical attacks using only the processing power and memory of resource-constrained embedded devices.
Why Attend this Course?
Typical attendees have embedded systems experience and an electrical engineering, computer science, computer engineering or similar background. Some are looking to add security to existing embedded devices while others are beginning new designs and desire to incorporate security from the start. These well-tested lectures and exercises provide an easy-to-follow path through the material with deep dives on advanced best practices. And there’s plenty of even deeper information on the thumb drive to explore after you leave.
What Makes this Course Stand Apart?
Many deployed embedded systems, particularly legacy medical devices, do not have adequate security measures. This course teaches practical techniques for increasing the security of deployed embedded systems.
What you will Learn?
How to perform a threat assessment in light of attacker motivations and capability profiles
How to perform a security analysis in light of available attack surfaces
The 10 most common vulnerabilities (and the most effective defenses against them)
A set of software development processes to detect and prevent security bugs
How to secure data at rest and data in motion with encryption
How to select a cryptographic protocol and how to manage keys securely
Best practice mechanical and electrical security design techniques
How to implement a secure bootloader and secure the firmware update process
More than 40 practical tips for securing embedded devices
Experienced Embedded Programmers
Min 2 Years Programming Experience.
The Embedded Security Boot Camp runs for 3-4 days and is a hands on and detailed course.
The course is broken up as follows:
Monday – Developing Secure Embedded Software (Part 1)
The development of security-hardened embedded software is a challenge. However, firmware can be secured by following best practice architectures, implementation techniques, and software development processes.
Tuesday – Developing Secure Embedded Software (Part 2)
This hands-on course continues to focus on reducing embedded software vulnerabilities through a mix of lectures and hands-on programming exercises.
Wednesday – Designing Security into Embedded Systems
Designing secure electronics and firmware requires an understanding of several areas, including software/hardware architecture, cryptography, and systems engineering. This course uses hands-on exercises and lectures to demonstrate the proper techniques to engineer security into embedded devices.
Teams will apply the security-oriented process and design techniques you’ve learned on a full-day project that is packed with learning opportunities and security considerations.
