ERICSSON: Bootstrapping security – the key to Internet of Things authentication and data integrity - White Papers Technology

Security will be a decisive factor in the success of the Internet of Things (IoT). However, ensuring the secure collection and transmission of IoT data remains a major challenge for this growing area.

Currently, many IoT data integrity and authentication solutions rely on extending proprietary implementations from traditional machine-to-machine (M2M) systems. Other solutions borrow traditional web mechanisms like certificates that require additional infrastructure in order to be fully effective.
