To meet demand, developers are under pressure to quickly support more features. Unfortunately, security may suffer. Learn the top security issues in software development for embedded devices.
Use of embedded devices is poised for explosive growth. Early adopters in the automotive, appliance, medical device, and consumer electronics industries are expanding the use of software-powered embedded devices, making products with increased intelligence and adding new features all the time. And many other industries are expected to embrace the Internet of Things (IoT), requiring more software to make powerful, smart, and interconnected devices. The bottom line is that many more embedded devices will be running software of some sort in the near future. To meet the booming demand and keep pace with rapidly changing consumer and business trends, developers are already under pressure to write more code, supporting more and new features, faster than ever. This paper will discuss the top security issues in software development for embedded devices.
