Jen (@RebelbotJen) joined Chris and Elecia to discuss security, privacy, and ethics in wearable computing.
Elecia's Linker post is especially relevant this week: Device Security Checklist..
There is already a standard for privacy and security: HIPAA (Title II). While not easy to read, it is a reasonable starting place. Another good (but not quite on-point) resource is the EFF Secure Messaging Scorecard, especially if you consider your device as messaging your user (it's a metaphor, ok?). Also, read all the way to the methodology, not just the pretty checkboxes.
The Embedded Systems Conference (Silicon Valley) will be held at the Santa Clara convention center July 20-22.
- Wearables and IoT Growing Up: Talking To Your Products About Security And Ethics (Jen, Wed 11am)
- Teardown: Wearing Security on Your Sleeve (mostly Jen with Elecia telling jokes if/when things go wrong, Tue 1:30pm, on the show floor so free to attend with an Expo pass. We'll be taking apart a Nymi band.)
- Faker to Maker in 45 Minutes or Less (Elecia, Wed 1:30pm)
