Ensuring the security of embedded systems is important to prevent unauthorized access or manipulation of the system and to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of the system and its data.
There are various approaches to securing embedded systems, including the use of secure processors and specialized security hardware, the implementation of security protocols, and the use of secure coding practices. It is also important to have a system in place for distributing updates and patches to address newly discovered vulnerabilities.
At AC6 Training, we offer a range of courses on embedded security, including courses on secure coding practices, hardware security, and the use of secure processors.

oSEC1 - Secure Development for Embedded System
Secure C/C++ and RUST Development
This course provides an introduction to embedded security and covers industry standards such as ISO/SAE 21434, IEC 62443, NIST SP 800-53, Common Criteria, and OWASP. It covers secure coding practices for C/C++ and introduces the RUST programming language with its built-in security features. Students will learn about secure software development methodologies, security testing, and cryptography in embedded systems. The course covers the design and implementation of secure embedded system hardware architecture and communication protocols. Additionally, it provides an overview of security best practices for IoT devices and systems.
oSEC2 - Advanced Embedded Systems Security
Create secure connected embedded systems
The objectives of this course include learning how to manipulate files and directories securely, protect programs from malicious user input, and understand embedded system hardware features for security.
Attendees will also learn about a secure software development methodology and framework, gain an understanding of the context and use of hypervisors and system virtualization, and become familiar with security checks and tools.
These topics are essential for the development of secure systems software and are applicable to a wide range of applications.
