Fast and easy way to secure smart and connected homes using hardware security

Smart homes are no longer a futuristic concept but an everyday reality. Their appeal is obvious: They make life easier and can help owners save money and energy. They also enable a whole new raft of innovative services and features. However, unprotected smart home devices are also a very attractive target for attackers, who can break into home networks, steal, misuse and manipulate sensitive personal data, and even gain unauthorized access to smart homes. 
Connected smart home devices can also be misused for larger-scale attacks such as DDoS attacks, which can take down entire server networks. This is why security has to be integrated into smart home networks right from the initial system design phase – we call it security by design.
 
Mixed Mode has been a member of the Infineon Security Partner Network (ISPN) since 2017. In this webinar, Mixed Mode and Infineon Technologies showcase effective security concepts and solutions, and demonstrate just how easy it is to protect smart and connected homes using hardware security.

Viewers will learn:

  • An overview of and insights into the smart home market
  • The main security use cases in smart homes
  • How easy it is to access data in an unprotected network
  • How important and easy it is to install hardware-based security in a smart home
  • A demo of a secured smart home use case
