Security must be a top priority for devices that support critical processes.
Industrial control systems, medical devices, automotive systems and many other embedded systems must be secure. These devices need to be protected from exploits that can compromise system integrity, performance, system availability and the confidentiality of sensitive data.

This is a summary of a blog post published in full on NXP.com.
Connecting and being connected makes us vulnerable to hackers. With the number of IoT devices forecasted to reach 20.4 billion by 2020, the need for product security becomes even more pressing.

Every week, more than 300 new vulnerabilities affecting software systems are disclosed by security reporting services such as the Common Vulnerabilities & Exposures (CVE) database operated by the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
If you develop embedded systems or embedded devices, keeping pace with the constant flood of new vulnerabilities, knowing which directly affect your products, and having the ability to quickly analyze them, is essential in keeping your products secure throughout their lifecycle.

Traditional IT security isn’t protecting embedded open source systems in IoT and IIoT deployments
Here at Timesys, we’ve been noticing some concerning trends when it comes to open source embedded system security and the rise of Internet of Things (IoT) and other intelligent devices. We’ve been hard at work developing a solution that can help ease your burden of carefully developing, monitoring, and maintaining security measures on your devices.
More and more IoT and IIoT products are being built with open source embedded software — which we think is great. But because of the growing number of developers turning to open source components for their products, security processes can’t keep up with the rate at which open source devices are being deployed. Traditional IT security has been built with secure perimeters and trusted environments, and has fewer intelligent devices and smaller attack surfaces. But those parameters have begun to change. And with more products to target, the number of security threats will only increase as well.
