Copper Horse’s Ryan Ng takes a look at some of the smart home technology that has taken in his interest in the first part of the year.

The Quandaries of Headless IoT Device Provisioning

 

Copper Horse’s Mobile Security Intern, April Baracho discusses challenges and methods of setting up secure and usable associations for IoT devices that have no visible user interface.

IoT

 

We are living in a world that is getting to be increasingly interconnected, an environment best described as the ‘Internet of Things’.
