Manchester Tech Nights #12

Thursday 10th December 2015, 7pm

Manchester Tech Nights is a meetup aimed at Manchester's technology community, either the people who are making Manchester's tech scene what it is, or just those who are interested and want to keep up-to-date. We want to find out what's going on across the north west, regardless of language. The night kicks off with a headline talk, followed by a series of shorter lightning talks and then an informal chat between attendees.

Headline Speaker

Securing the Internet of Things -- When "good" security is not good enough

For the Internet of Things to be a reality, we need the Things to become as seamless, invisible and integrated as possible. When in 2025 our world will be populated by billions of forgotten tiny connected devices, will the heart implant that you installed today be ready for the security challenges ahead of it? Alessandro Angelino has been working on the uVisor, a secure microkernel for mbed™ OS, the ARM operating system for the Internet of Things. His work focuses on creating secure execution environments in constrained ARM Cortex-M based microcontrollers. In this talk he will present the multi-dimensional threat model of the IoT and describe the technologies and tools that make security a foundation, not just a feature, of the ARM® mbed™ ecosystem.
