In this talk, we will look at the security of embedded devices from a defenders perspective as we will discuss what it takes to secure such a device.

Then we will present its security threats, related security controls and possible ways to apply those using currently available techniques, tools and hardware. During the talk, we will point out differences between the IT security and device security and look at the current and future trends in the later.
