A critical flaw in random number generators puts the security of billions of low-cost IoT devices at risk. This means a new approach for generating random numbers is needed, which can be found in extracting entropy from SRAM behaviour.
To secure the billions of devices that are being connected to the Internet of Things, every device needs to have the capability to protect sensitive data and secure communications.
Secure key storage is essential for internet-of-things (IoT) devices. Most IoT devices utilize multiple application-specific keys from diverse suppliers to enable applications such as authentication, message encryption, software/firmware encryption, to name just a few.
Connecting devices to a network requires many kinds of keys for protecting data at rest as well as the device’s communications. So, the implementation of the security system of an IoT device requires more than a single cryptographic key.
