Identifying requirements for enhancing privacy in embedded designs

first_imgAs Internet-connected devices become more prevalent, they are fueling an increasing risk to privacy. Fortunately, there are now many off-the-shelf chips and services available to help designs resist intrusion and prevent unauthorized access to private data. The key lies in identifying the specific threats that need mitigation.Broadly stated, privacy entails keeping designated information inaccessible without authorization from the information’s owner. Privacy involves security; information cannot be kept private without also keeping it secure. But they are not the same thing. Security for information also involves preventing malicious alteration or destruction. In that sense, information can be kept secure without being kept private.There are many reasons to keep information private, with one of the major ones the many governmental regulations and requirements worldwide for maintaining privacy of information that can be associated with an individual person, known as personally identifiable information (PII). Much of what constitutes PII is obvious – things like a person’s name, address, account numbers, location, health status, images, and activities are all PII that most would recognize as meriting privacy.But other types of information that might need to be kept secure are not as obviously private, because the information in and of itself is not personally identifiable. Paired with a second piece of information, however, that first piece can become identifiable, thus requiring privacy. For example, a connected thermostat’s temperature setting may not seem like it needs privacy protection. Somewhere a thermostat is set to 55 degrees. So, what? Pair that setting with information about the thermostat’s current location, however, and it suddenly becomes personal. Someone knowing that a specific house has its thermostat set to 55 degrees may allow them to infer that the owners are on vacation and the house is relatively safe to burgle.In electronic devices the information, or data, that may need to be kept secure is substantial. Both data at rest, i.e., in memory or storage, as well as data in motion, passing through the network or along wires and circuits, will need protection. If that protection involves encryption, which it usually does, then the encryption keys must also be protected. And in addition to the personal data and keys present or moving about, designers may need to ensure that system software and firmware is safe from tampering, lest a “bad actor” alter system behavior to make it disclose information that was to be kept private.There are also a substantial, and growing, number of ways in which electronic data security can be compromised. Remote attackers can eavesdrop on network communications. A “man in the middle” can intercept messages in transit and pretend to be the intended recipient, passing along messages between the legitimate parties to conceal the interruption. A remote attacker also can send messages that trigger system weaknesses, insert malware during provisioning or over-the-air updates, or exploit other code vulnerabilities. Figure 1: There are many forms of attack that can compromise data security, requiring many different countermeasures. (Image source: ARM) The threat model thus developed will help guide the hardware and software design attributes required for protecting data privacy. Fortunately, the semiconductor industry has been developing numerous devices and services that address most threats and offers developer support in identifying applying the right countermeasures. Identify the assets (data) they need to protect. For privacy this will include any PII present or in motion through the device. It also must include encryption keys if used, and may need to include system firmware, identity codes, message metadata, and more. Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: IoT If the attacker has physical access, or even just proximity, to a system then additional attack avenues open, both intrusive and non-intrusive. Probing of signal buses can reveal private information as it flows through the system. Monitoring power lines or EMI radiation can provide information that allows recovery of encryption keys. Altering the content of or even replacing code storage devices is also possible with physical access, as is stripping away packaging to expose die for probing and analysis.Physical access attacks on data security can occur at times other than after a device is deployed, as well. Bad actors can copy encryption keys, or even clone whole systems, during manufacturing and assembly, for instance. A device’s clone can then operate in a system as though it belongs there, bypassing nearly all forms of security with “inside” activity. And once a device is retired from service and discarded, someone can acquire it and extract information at their leisure.No single method provides security against the myriad types of attack possible and implementing all possible security methods can be prohibitively expensive. Also, attack opportunities and risk vary by application. So, developers must choose carefully what methods they will implement. The place to start is before beginning detailed design, by creating a threat model. The model should consider not only the device itself, but the systems connected to it. It should also examine the environment of the device’s normal operational setting, as well as throughout its entire life cycle.In developing the threat model, there are several steps developers should take: Determine the countermeasures that will be required and their implementation cost in terms of design time, performance, and bills of material. Identify the types of attack these assets might be subject to, estimate their likelihood, and evaluate a successful attack’s impact. Be sure to include the device’s whole lifecycle, including manufacturing, deployment, and disposal. This will help identify which threats are serious enough to require mitigation.

They should be finishing in the top three with that squad, that’s where they should be, there’s no doubt about that in my opinion.”But to get to a Champions League final was great for them. It was great to see them reach the final. “At the start of the year I really thought Spurs would push Man City and Liverpool a lot, lot closer.

Imlil Murders Suspects Were Targeting Kings Adviser Andre Azoulay

Rabat – According to the preliminary investigation by Morocco’s Central Bureau of Judicial Investigation (BCIJ), the list of terror suspects arrested in connection with the Imlil murders includes an imam and an ex-military member.Jeune Afrique news outlet obtained exclusive information from the preliminary investigation into the double murder of Louisa Vesterager Jespersen and Maren Ueland near Mount Toubkal in December 2018.The suspects were planning serious attacks against tourists, churches, Jewish mausoleums, and festivals. The suspects, according to Jeune Afrique, were also targeting a series of public figures, including the King’s Jewish advisor, Andre Azoulay. They also planned to burn down Azoulay’s property in Marrakech.*Read Also: Morocco’s BCIJ Dismantles New ISIS Terror Cell in Eastern MoroccoThe suspects were also planning to attack Mohamed Ben Abderrahme El Mghraoui, a “moderate” Moroccan Salafi.BCIJ arrested at least 22 suspects in connection to the murders. Police found the bodies of the two tourists on December 17, 2018.The suspects will be tried in accordance with the 2003 Anti-Terror Law for having ties with a group that planned to commit acts of terror in Morocco.Suspects involved in terrorism typically receive sentences ranging from 10 to 20 years in prison.All the suspects arrested for the double murder appeared before the investigating judge pending their trial after the investigation was finalized. read more

UN opens new courtroom to try pirate suspects in Kenyan port

25 June 2010The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) and Kenya, the country currently holding the highest number of piracy suspects, today opened a new high-security courtroom to try suspects in the port town of Mombasa. “Kenya has taken on a heavy burden in dealing with a crime that affects the entire international community,” said John Sandage, Officer-in-Charge of UNODC’s Division of Treaty Affairs.“Today’s event is a recognition of their commitment and a demonstration of solidarity from the international community,” he said.The new courtroom – intended to increase trial efficiency in the system and provide a secure, modern environment suitable for piracy cases – was built by UNODC’s Counter-Piracy Programme with contributions from Australia, Canada, the European Union (EU), France, Germany and the United States.It is designed to hear cases of maritime piracy and other serious criminal offences. “There are no V.I.P. prisoners and there are no V.I.P. defendants: all the improvements have impact on everybody in the criminal justice system,” Alan Cole of the Counter-Piracy Programme at the regional office of UNODC told UN Radio.He added that the courtroom is one part of international efforts through UNODC to improve conditions in Kenya and improve capacity of the country’s justice system “so that as many pirates as possible can be given as good a trial as possible without any additional load on the Government of Kenya.” Some 123 suspected pirates have been held in Kenya, of which 18 have been convicted and 105 remain on trial.The majority were arrested in the Indian Ocean, off the coast of Somalia, where the fragile Transitional Federal Government (TFG) is unable to securely hold and try them.In April, the Security Council put forward the possibility of establishing international tribunals to try pirates, with members calling for tougher legislation to prosecute and jail suspects.There are also plans to create a regional trial centre in the Seychelles, which is currently holding 31 suspects apprehended by the EU Naval Force Somalia – Operation (EU NAVFOR).Despite international naval patrols, “the attacks continue, indeed, they are increasing,” Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon told the General Assembly last month.Over the four years until 2009, there was a seven-fold increase in piracy incidents off the coast of East Africa, and a global jump in incidents from 100 in 2008 to 406 in 2009, according to UN International Maritime Organization (IMO) global figures. read more

BlackBerry shares fall below 10 for first time since November amid renewed

TORONTO — BlackBerry shares closed below $10 for the first time since last year on Wednesday, a day after the smartphone maker’s chief executive encouraged investors to remain patient while the company navigates its recovery plan.[np_storybar title=”BlackBerry hunts for fresh partnerships to boost market share as devotees dwindle” link=”″%5D [/np_storybar]The Waterloo, Ont.-based company’s stock ended the session down nearly four per cent, or 40 cents, to $9.80 at the Toronto Stock Exchange.The stock last closed below $10 on Nov. 20 and reached a 52-week high of $17.80 in January, around the time that its new smartphones were unveiled.BlackBerry has faced a heightened level of scrutiny since it posted quarterly results last month that fell short of analysts’ largely optimistic expectations.A growing sentiment between analysts has focused on whether BlackBerry will be able to successfully recover from its past blunders any time soon, particularly because even some of the industry’s most popular smartphone developers are running into headwinds. Both Samsung and HTC recently posted quarterly sales reports that fell short of expectations.While Heins has hinted at products that could hit stores before the end of this year, the company hasn’t announced anything specific. It’s widely expected that the company will unveil a phablet — a smaller-sized tablet device — designed to fill the void left by its decision to no longer update the PlayBook.“They are wanting to launch products at a measured pace, but time is of the essence and we believe the company would be better served with shorter product cycles,” said Bill Kreher, a technology analyst with financial services firm Edward Jones in an interview.“In the smartphone category today you need to be front-of-mind with consumers, which requires consistent rollouts to keep you relevant.”Pacific Crest analyst James Faucette said the high-end smartphone market is facing a point of “general saturation” that could weigh on BlackBerry’s attempt to gain a stronger position.The launch of the lower-priced BlackBerry Q5 smartphone in the UK has fallen short of expectations with sales of roughly 5,000 devices, according to Faucette’s checks with retailers.The numbers are not official and BlackBerry does not release specific sales figures for its devices.Faucette also said U.K. retailer Phones 4U has sent back their stock of Blackberry Z10 phones from “as many as a third” of its locations and doesn’t plan to stock it any longer.“We believe BlackBerry is at risk of similar behaviour from other retailers and in other regions in the coming quarters, which we believe would impede the company’s ability to regain scale,” he said in a note, with an underperform rating on the company.“Checks indicate continued deterioration of BlackBerry’s business. We see downside to $6 per share and remain sellers.”Emails to UK.. representatives of Phones 4U were not answered on Wednesday and a BlackBerry spokeswoman declined to comment on the matter.On Tuesday, Heins outlined BlackBerry’s strategy to become profitable once again at the company’s annual meeting.The three-stage plan included pushing ahead with new products yet to be unveiled, focusing more on corporate customers, and opening the BlackBerry Messenger service to competing devices like Apple’s iPhone and smartphones on the Android operating system later this summer.From there, Heins said the company aims to return to profitability, which he called the third stage of the plan, but he stopped short of predicting when that would happen.Sales of BlackBerry’s new smartphones in the United States have been considered underwhelming by analysts, and shareholders expressed their concerns on Tuesday about the company’s position in the highly-competitive U.S. market at the annual meeting.Heins said he is aware that investors expect “better results and faster progress from us.”Last month, BlackBerry parted ways with Richard Piasentin, who was responsible for the management of its sales in the United States. The company is also working to save further costs throughout its operations.The Canadian Press read more

Security Council wraps up Lake Chad Basin visit stops in epicentre of

“Neither the military fight against terrorism nor the immediate humanitarian response will solve these protracted crises,” Ambassador Matthew Rycroft of the United Kingdom, who is leading the Council visit as President of the 15-nation body for the month of March, told journalists in Abuja.He spoke alongside Edward Kallon, the UN Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator in Nigeria, as well as Fodé Seck, Representative of Senegal to the United Nations, and Michele Sison, Deputy Representative of the United States to the United Nations.“What is needed in the end is long-term development,” Mr. Rycroft said, noting the need for jobs, education, human rights, services for displaced people and refugees, and solutions for coping with drought and other environmental challenges.“Those are multifaceted, complex set of problems and require a holistic set of solutions, and we are here to support the Government of Nigeria in finding those solutions,” he vowed.Yesterday, the Council members met with internally displaced persons (IDPs) at the Teacher Village in Maiduguri, in hard-hit Borno state in the north-eastern part of the country. About half of the displaced persons living in the camp are children, with 379 of them infants. The Council members joined a circle of survivors, many of whom were women whose husbands and children were killed by Boko Haram, and who are struggling to feed themselves and the remnants of families that they have left. Members of the UN Security Council mission on a visit to the Lake Chad Basin visited the Economic Community Of West African States (ECOWAS) and discussed challenges that the region is facing. Photo: Japan/UN Mission “Their accounts of a life in crisis were beyond sobering,” Mr. Rycroft said.The displaced camp is in Maiduguri, which is known as the epicentre of the years long Boko Haram crisis, according to Governor Kashim Shettima, who spoke with the Council members. Some 14 million people are affected by Boko Haram, with 8.5 million people in urgent need of humanitarian aid.While in Nigeria, the Council also met with women’s groups from across the country who called for a greater role in finding solutions to the Lake Chad Basin crisis.“We can pass information faster than the men,” one woman told the Council.The Council members also spoke with members of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), a regional group of 16 countries, with discussions focused on coordination of response and sharing of information. The Council also met with Nigeria’s acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, and other senior political leaders.After visiting Nigeria, and previously being in Cameroon, Chad and Niger, the Council emphasized that “barely enough is being done” to aid the crisis in the Lake Chad Basin.“The scale we have seen is of a growing crisis. Famine is being averted at the moment because of the generosity of donors and the effectiveness of the national responses – but only just,” Mr. Rycroft said, adding: “We urge the international community as a whole to continue to step up before it is too late. And that means right now.” read more

Ohio State mens basketball hangs on vs Illinois 7573 for 6th straight

OSU junior forward Marc Loving (2) celebrates during a game against Air Force on Dec. 8 in Columbus. OSU won, 74-50. Credit: Samantha Hollingshead | Photo EditorThe Ohio State men’s basketball team extended its win streak to six games Sunday, as it defeated Illinois 75-73 in a close-fought conference matchup in Columbus. OSU survived the Fighting Illini’s 3-point barrage in the second half, narrowly escaping as Illinois’ last-second heave bounced off the left side of the backboard. After the game, OSU coach Thad Matta said he was impressed by Illinois’ performance, as the visitors played OSU tough up until the final whistle.“I thought Illinois played very, very well,” Matta said. “They hit some of the (timeliest) shots that I’ve ever seen. Give our guys credit, (because) a few weeks ago we would have probably crumbled, but we kept our composure, we kept fighting.” The Buckeyes were led by the play of junior forward Marc Loving, who had 27 points and seven rebounds. The win pushes the Scarlet and Gray’s record to 10-5, including a 2-0 mark in the Big Ten.Matta said getting high-level play from Loving, the most experienced player on the team, is essential to the team’s success. “Marc was very, very efficient tonight,” Matta said. “I think he kind of had a huge three in the corner, but also was able to put the ball down on the floor, got to the foul line. Marc has had a really, really good focus the last few games and, as your lone upperclassman on a basketball team, you hope that’s something we can continue to ride on.” OSU was able to ice the game at the free throw line, shooting 28-of-39 from the stripe for the game. Both teams were in foul trouble early in the second half, much to the disdain of Illinois coach John Groce.“We’ve got to play a lot harder without fouling,” Groce said. “That’s the highest number of free throws an opponent has shot against us all year and that was the difference in the game.” Groce’s team only made 12 of 32 3-point attempts, and overall OSU held Illinois to 40 percent shooting from the field. Matta said although the defense is not be where he ultimately wants it to be, he is happy with the way the defense is playing.“I think that we’re getting there,” Matta said. “The thing that I would say that I’m not pleased with is we made some mistakes and they made us pay for them tonight. Those are things that are happen. I do think we’re understanding scouting more. We’ve got to continue to build it, but I like the direction we’re headed with our defense.” For OSU, the first half was one to forget, as the team was held to only 32 percent shooting from the field, thanks to the 2-3 zone Illinois employed. The rough first half, however, could perhaps be attributed to the absence of freshman point guard JaQuan Lyle, who picked up two fouls in the opening two minutes of play. The Buckeyes clung to a 30-26 lead going into halftime, looking for improved results in the second frame.OSU found those results with Lyle back on the court. With their starting point guard leading the offense, the Buckeyes returned to form in the second half — seeing a near-instant improvement. With Lyle running the show, OSU shot 52 percent from the floor in the second half.“I couldn’t be happier with the way (JaQuan) played,” Matta said. Lyle said he was disappointed to pick up two quick fouls and put his team in a bind early on, but knew when he came back in the second half, he would have a chance to lead his team to victory. “My mindset was that I was fresh,” Lyle said. “Everyone else had been playing the whole first 20 minutes so I took advantage of that. My legs were fresh and I made a couple of layups. Then I just started making plays.” Lyle poured in 14 points and a team-high 5 assists — all in the second half — for OSU.The Buckeyes, now on a hot streak with six straight wins, will move to face Northwestern on Wednesday in Evanston, Illinois, which Matta said will be a good test for his basketball team.“We’re going to see where we are,” Matta said. “The last road game against (Connecticut), we were awful. It will be interesting to see how we come out to start that game. Northwestern is playing some great basketball right now and it’s always a tough place to play.”Tip-off against the Wildcats is set for 9 p.m. read more

Scotland Yard criticised over knife crime after another teenager is stabbed to

Knife-related injuries among under-25s fell by 15 per cent, equating to 311 fewer victims, dropping from 2,079 to 1,768.Stop and searches rose by 30 per cent to 172,000 , of which 9,500 were section 60 emergency stop and searches where police suspend the requirement to have reasonable suspicion to search suspects in a designated area. Tashaun Jones, pictured on Facebook Elaine Thomas, from the Mentoring Lab, a locally based youth project, said: “This is terror on the streets because of how we are left to feel. There are so many parents who don’t let their children out to play and don’t know what to say to their own children when something like this happens.”Isak Kara , a 55-year-old self employed property developer, added: “I don’t see a lot of police here. A few police cars come and go but there should be more here for our safety.”Members of Tashaun’s family, including his mother and grandfather, gathered outside the police cordon at the scene of the fatal stabbing, with one woman screaming: “It’s my son. It’s my son”.A school friend of the teenager said: “Tashaun produced music on the computer, Afrobeats, for some big artists. He made drill music as well. He was a good guy, always laughing and joking – he was always respectful. In a pre-planned briefing on Thursday Scotland Yard announced that a blitz on violent crime, including a 30 per cent rise in stop and searches, had brought down youth stabbings by 15 per cent and cut murders by a quarter.Over the past 12 months, there were 122 homicides recorded by the Met, with 32 fewer victims than the previous period, not including nine killed in terrorist attacks in 2017. Ms Dick said: “The figures, when they are put in the context of what happened overnight [with the fatal stabbing of the 15 year old] can seem rather bald, and cold and unemotional.“Each young man stabbed is a terrible thing for them, their family, their friends, their community and for the person who did the stabbing it often wrecks their lives as well as their family’s as well.”She added: “Our efforts are beginning to pay dividends in terms of violence. On violence, we have made some real progress.”But retired police Superintendent Leroy Logan, who works with victims of knife crime, said the Met was a long way from regaining control of the situation.Mr Logan, who retired in 2013 after 30 years’ service, told The Telegraph: “It’s not much good talking about an improvement when murders and fatal stabbings are still much higher than they should be. “The Met are nowhere near getting a grip on this. The thin blue line is so thinly stretched and people are still feeling scared. Youngsters are still feeling scared and are carrying knives as a result.”He also questioned the use of borough wide Section 60 orders, such as the one introduced in Hackney following the murder of Tashaun, as lacking focus and not being intelligence-led.

Tashaun Jones, pictured on FacebookCredit:Facebook Two people console each other as they view the crime scene at Somerford Grove, in Hackney “He was really bubbly and always gave away positive energy. I never thought any of my friends would be murdered.”A second boy, aged 16, found in a nearby road, was also stabbed but did not sustain life-threatening injuries.So far this year, more than 40 murder investigations have been launched in the capital by the Metropolitan and British Transport police forces. Twenty-nine of those investigations have been as a result of fatal stabbings. Murder Scene in Hackney read more
