EEMBC to look at IoT security

Peter Clarke of EE Times Europe reported this week that The Embedded Microprocessor Benchmark Consortium (EEMBC) trade group plans benchmarking edge-node IoT energy consumption and IoT security.

The security benchmarking will focus on software and hardware IP and SoCs security in terms energy consumed, memory used, latency and bandwidth.

Security is by necessity an end-to-end solution that can include the cloud. Benchmarking will include such facets as data in-use, in-flight and at-rest, cryptographic functions, identification and authentication.
