How Secure is the Future of Communication?

Alcom offers an article “How Secure is the Future of Communication?” written by Redpine outlining the security aspects of the connected world from device level, wireless level and cloud level. The article summarizesthe present day methods of maintaining private and secure communication, while pointing out some major loopholes and possible areas improving robustness to ensure security in connected devices of the future.
“Although the foundations for secure communication have been laid down, the prevailing vulnerabilities are a major cause for concern. With a forecast of over tens of billions of connected devices, security is a complex but imperative responsibility that all device makers must take on.”

  • Co-existence of multiple wireless protocols managed by an internal protocol arbitration manager
  • Ultra-low power consumption with multiple power modes to reduce the system energy consumption
  • Multiple levels of security including FIPS 140-2 and PUF (Physically Unclonable Function) to create a highly secure system
  • Fully integrated and wireless certifed modules with multiple sizes as small as 4.24 mm x 6.12 mm
  • Multiple software architectures (hosted and embedded) and host interfaces (SDIO, USB, SPI, UART) for easy integration with different processor families and operating systems
  • Footprint compatible single band and dual band modules as well as hosted and embedded modules for easy migration within the product family
  • Leading edge RF performance providing long range and higher throughputs
