IBM Internet of Things Foundation is a fully managed, cloud-hosted service that makes it simple to derive value from Internet of Things (IoT) devices, be it a sensor, a gateway or something else. Using IBM’s recipes, it can get connected and start sending data securely up to the cloud using the open, lightweight MQTT messaging protocol. From there, setup and managing the IoT devices using online dashboard or IBM’s secure APIs, so that IoT apps can access live and historical data fast. Users can easily start creating applications using device data, within IBM Bluemix platform, another cloud or own servers.
In this video, the dashboard displays an example of some of the analytics which can be calculated using IBM IoT Foundation, such as the impact analysis from the live hits on the hard hat which are then displayed on Bluemix, IBMs cloud infrastructure. This platform allows a “one-stop-shop” for a device developer to get started and make use of the sensor data and connected devices, immediately.

Milosch Meriac, ARM IoT Security Engineer, talks about the strategy ARM is working on to make Internet of Things secure. ARM is convinced that many IoT security problems can be solved with standardised building blocks. ARM is developing the uVisor, a self-contained software hypervisor that creates independent secure domains on ARM Cortex-M3 and M4 microcontrollers (M0+ will follow). Its function is to increase resilience against malware and to protect secrets from leaking even among different modules of the same application. The uVisor is one of these basic building blocks – complementary to other important blocks like robust communication stacks, safe firmware updates and secure crypto libraries. The design philosophy of uVisor is to provide hardware-enforced compartments (sandboxes) for individual code blocks by limiting access to memories and peripherals using the existing hardware security features of the Cortex-M microcontrollers. Breaking the established flat security model of microcontrollers into compartmentalised building blocks results in high security levels, as the reach of flaws or external attacks can be limited to less sensitive function blocks. A basic example of uVisor is preventing unauthorised access to flash memory from faulty or compromised code. This not only prevents malware from getting resident on the device, but also enables protection of device secrets like cryptographic keys. Services built on top of ARM’s security layer can safely depend on an unclonable trusted identity, secure access to internet services and benefit from encryption key protection.

Archos unveils their plan to cover the world with cheap bandwidth for the Internet of Things using PicoWAN, Archos’s new ultra-low-cost long range IoT bandwidth adapter. People will get them for free by June 2016, to install in their own homes, and each PicoWAN has up to kilometers of range bandwidth for IoT devices into every neighborhood, worldwide. Archos estimates that 200 thousand of these units can cover the whole of Europe with connectivity for IoT.
– Is it on unlicensed 700mhz TV white spaces?
– Is there not enough bandwidth to also support a worldwide free broadband network for Smartphones and Tablets too?
– This is the future! I video-blogged FON wifi enthusiastically in last 10 years and their lack of range has been disappointing. As FON, anyone sharing bandwidth from their home should not only share 50% in revenue but also they should roam the world for free.
I possibly think it would be better for Archos PicoWAN to somehow provide free connectivity for everyone, free connectivity for every IoT device around the world, yet each device should be registered so they cannot use up all available bandwidth, some kind of throttling maybe is required within PicoWAN. Unlocking extra bandwidth should be possible for devices that need more bandwidth, but only if the bandwidth is available.
