As embedded devices change from relatively simple, integrated circuits that drive switches to connected, powerful machines with rich functionality and touch screen user interfaces, resembling consumer mobile devices in look and feel as well as technology, securing them becomes even more challenging. This presentation will explore aspects of this from the point of view of the engineers building a modern, connected embedded device.
