Cryptoprocessing on the Arduino - Protecting user data using affordable microcontroller development kits
MetadataShow full item record
There is a growing trend of data breaches, which this report looks into. The breaches often turn out to have, at their core, an element of either poor security management, or outdated or incorrectly applied security procedures. With this in mind, an affordable off-the-shelf microcontroller development kit is suggested as a way to lessen the impact of data theft during data breaches. Utilising an Arduino Due this report looks at the performance available for cryptoprocessing and key storage, showing that while it is not a viable solution for encrypting large amounts of data, it is however suitable for securely encrypting limited data sets, such as customer data.
