Embedded system security has never been more important. Rising cyberattacks against embedded systems are increasingly putting devices and customers at risk of compromise.
This means device makers need to focus on security when products are designed and when they are managed throughout the product lifecycle.
Hundreds of new software vulnerabilities are announced every week by vulnerability tracking services such as the Common Vulnerabilities & Exposures (CVE) database maintained by the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Having a plan for identifying CVEs that affect potentially compromised open source components in your software and mitigating the ones that pose the greatest risk are central to establishing and maintaining secure software throughout the product lifecycle.
Timesys has published an e-book, Vulnerability Management for Embedded Systems Using Open Source. Featuring insights from Timesys’ experts, the e-book details important trends in open source embedded system software security, both in how system software is designed and built to be secure, and how security is maintained after products are released to customers.
The e-book explores best practices for effective security maintenance of embedded systems and includes details on:
- Managing Embedded System Product Cybersecurity Risk
- CVE Monitoring & Management: Guidance on Best Practices
- Process Template: Managing Security Maintenance in the Product Lifecycle
- Timesys Vigiles: Vulnerability Management & Mitigation for Stronger Embedded System Security
