Eclipse Vorto: The next step in IoT device integration

Source: IOT : IOT Alexander Edelmann 你好(Chinese for “Hello”), I am based in Singapore and have been working as a software engineer for Robert Bosch since 2006. I am passionate about IoT and believe in open standards that determine the successful interplay between devices across various IoT platforms. That is why I actively contribute to the Eclipse IoT Vorto project, which aims to provide cloud-based tools to uniformly describe IoT devices and integrate them into various IoT platforms based on open IoT standards. My IoT geeky side apart, I enjoy Asian cuisines that allow me to practice my chopsticks skills. You can also find me on the court hitting a few tennis balls with my friends. Looking at examples like smart factories and homes, connected devices are improving not only the cost and r...

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). Eclipse Hono has supported the use of TLS in its HTTP and MQTT protocol adapters from the very beginning. The recently released 0.9-M2 milestone has added su...
