With a record number of more than 32,000 visitors, the 2018 embedded world exhibition in Nuremberg more than lived up to its reputation as the international exhibition of the embedded community. This was also evident at the ESCRYPT and ETAS booths in Hall 4, where visitors flocked to presentations on V2X security, intrusion detection and prevention, and the new Cyber Defense Center over the course of the three-day event. Many interesting discussions were held on combining embedded IT security and backend services as a means for ensuring holistic IoT security.
With its captivating and entertaining keynote speeches on all things security and embedded, the innovative open classroom was a particular hit with audiences. An invitation to foray into the world of cryptography and a demonstration of automotive ransomware scenarios met with so much interest that many visitors were left with standing room only. Meanwhile, others got down to work at the full-day ESCRYPT “Securing V2X Communication” workshop led by international experts.
Conclusion: embedded world is and will remain a must for anyone who deals with IoT security, so be sure to mark your calendar now for February 26 to 28, 2019.
