FPGAs: Security Through Obscurity?

Background For the uninitiated, an FPGA is a field-programmable array of logic that is typically used to perform or accelerate some specific function (or functions) within a computer system. They are typically paired with a separate traditional microprocessor (or as part of a combined system-on-chip (SoC)) but can operate standalone as well. They can be … Continue reading FPGAs: Security Through Obscurity?

Rise of the Sensors: Securing LoRaWAN Networks

One of the current research priorities for NCC Group is smart cities. We perceive that in the future substantial investment will be made into deploying intelligent sensor systems into our cities: initially the focus being on passive applications, gathering and collecting data, but potentially in future leading to more active applications, integrating systems to automatically … Continue reading Rise of the Sensors: Securing LoRaWAN Networks
