Embedded Software Security Training

Embedded software security is more important than ever in the digital age and due to the increased usage of embedded systems.

The incidence of malicious code and software vulnerability exploits on embedded platforms is constantly on the rise.

The monetary value of data, the ability to cause serious harm, and the interoperability and connectivity of modern embedded systems, including mission-critical systems, make embedded systems popular targets.

Cyberattacks on embedded systems range from disabling vehicle anti-theft devices and degrading the performance of control systems to directing printers to send copies of documents to the hacker and accessing a smartphone’s data.

However, cybersecurity professionals believe there are fixes for embedded software security vulnerabilities. One solution may be a microkernel OS.

A microkernel OS is structured with a tiny kernel space with services like file systems provided in user space, drivers or network stacks. Less code running in kernel space reduces the attack surface and increases security. The microkernel works with a team of optional cooperating processes that run outside kernel space (in the user space) and provide higher-level OS functionality.

Cybersecurity professionals recommend that manufacturers incorporate security measures into embedded devices regardless of their memories or storage limitations.

This is important because a lot of the gadgets and machines powered by embedded devices are also connected to the internet. This means that hackers can gain unauthorized access to them, and run malicious code. 

A hack in an embedded device can often spread to other connected components, and/or cripple the entire system. For example, it’s quite possible a cybercriminal could get access to your car by simply gaining control of an embedded device that allows you to put your car on auto-pilot.
