Authentication of Edge-Device in AWS IoT

Security is the major concern for any IoT system even if it is just some inconsequential data. Because the future of the technology is IoT and an IoT system can be built to control something as insignificant as a thermostat to something as significant as autopiloting a car. AWS has not taken IoT security as an afterthought but as a security-first while designing their AWS IoT platform. AWS IoT uses MQTT to receive messages from the edge devices. Since MQTT doesn't have a strong security (it has a minimal password based security), they use 'Mutual authentication TLS' i.e. the device [...]

TLS, a standardized version of SSL

SSL was developed by Netscape Communications Corporation in 1994 for secure Internet communication. Later, in 1999, Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) defined TLS as a standard protocol, which will allow secure transactions over the World Wide Web. TLS is widely recognized as the protocol that provides HTTPS for Internet transactions between Web browsers and Web servers. TLS can also be used for other application level protocols, such as File Transfer Protocol (FTP) and Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP). Improvements of TLS over SSL: The Hashing for Message Authentication Code (HMAC) algorithm replaced the SSL’s Message Authentication Code (MAC) algorithm. In [...]
