Who will be the winners—and the losers? In this white paper, Qorvo's Cees Links provides an overview of what the IoT stands for and how it can have a strong impact on society. (8 pages)
  • Why PKI Matters for the IIoT
    Published May 2017
    The Industrial Internet of Things can transform manufacturing, transportation, power generation and other industries with greater automation, new services and more efficient resource allocation. These advancements depend on data generated by IIoT devices now being built and deployed. But the potential cannot be realized if the data produced by the devices cannot be trusted, and that requires stronger security. Icon Labs' Alan Grau and Dave West discuss the role of Public Key Infrastructure (PKI), a set of technologies and services for managing the authentication of computer systems. (6 pages)
  • What You Need to Know About IoT Platforms
