X.509 based device authentication in Eclipse Hono

Source: IOT : IOT During the last few months, the media has been full of reports about insecure IoT devices that did not fulfill even the most basic security requirements. One of the concerns raised was the confidentiality of data being transferred from devices to cloud services provided by the manufacturers. In many cases, data is sent over public networks fully unencrypted, which is quite surprising, given that all of the popular TCP/IP-based transport protocols used in today’s IoT devices (e.g., HTTP and MQTT) support the negotiation and use of a secure (encrypted) transport channel by means of Transport Layer Security (TLS).
