Exosite Senior Applications Engineer Will Charlton to Present at IoT Fuse 2018
by Exosite, on May 1, 2018
Yearly event brings together hundreds of developers, entrepreneurs and executives to build a deeper understanding of IoT
MINNEAPOLIS — May 1, 2018 — Exosite, a leading provider in the Internet of Things (IoT) platform market, today announced that Senior Applications Engineer Will Charlton will present a workshop at IoT Fuse 2018 on May 2 at the University of St. Thomas campus in Minneapolis.
IoT Fuse is a three-day event designed to build a deeper understanding of where IoT is today, where it is headed in the future, and how IoT-associated technologies and use cases can improve the physical world in which we live. The IoT Fuse Workshops will take place May 1-2, providing a series of two-hour, interactive sessions to help attendees stay informed on the most important and enabling technologies within the IoT ecosystem. Workshop tracks include topics on intelligent device, gateway and sensing capabilities, as well as secure device-to-cloud communications. The IoT Fuse Workshops will be followed by the IoT Fuse Conference, which will take place on May 3 at the Minneapolis Convention Center. The conference will provide exhibits, speakers and sessions aimed at bringing together both the technical and business side of IoT.
Charlton will present on May 2 from 3:30-5:30 p.m. in room 448 of Terrence Murphy Hall on “Secure Device Provisioning with PKI Certificates.” This topic was developed based on the recognition that, as the growth of IoT continuing to rise, businesses often feel pressure to integrate connectivity into new or existing products lines quickly. As a result, security can become a last-minute consideration, making billions of devices vulnerable to attacks and intrusions that can compromise personal privacy, public safety and company reputations.
In this session, Charlton will explain how to leverage enterprise public key infrastructure (PKI) technology during the manufacturing and provisioning process to establish trust and ensure secure communication between connected devices in the field and a cloud platform. Attendees will walk away with an understanding of what a certificate authority (CA) is and how to function as one, how to generate a certificate-signing request (CSR) and what functions they serve, the differences between symmetric and asymmetric cryptography and how to engage with a PKI provider to develop a production-grade security strategy. More information on the event and registration can be found here.
