Overview of this book

Microsoft’s end-to-end IoT platform is the most complete IoT offering, empowering enterprises to build and realize value from IoT solutions efficiently. It is important to develop robust and reliable solutions for your organization to leverage IoT services. This book focuses on how to start building custom solutions using the IoT hub or the preconfigured solution of Azure IoT suite. As a developer, you will be taught how to connect multiple devices to the Azure IoT hub, develop, manage the IoT hub service and integrate the hub with cloud. We will be covering REST APIs along with HTTP, MQTT and AMQP protocols. It also helps you learn Pre-Configured IoT Suite solution. Moving ahead we will be covering topics like:-Process device-to-cloud messages and cloud-to-device messages using .Net-Direct methods and device management-Query Language, Azure IoT SDK for .Net-Creating and managing, Securing IoT hub, IoT Suite and many more. We will be using windows 10 IoT core, Visual Studio, universal Windows platform. At the end, we will take you through IoT analytics and provide a demo of connecting real device with Azure IoT.

Security best practices

The IoT security strategy defines how to secure data in the cloud and protect data integrity, while IoT device telemetry data does the communication over the public internet, and securely provisions IoT devices which are continuously running and collecting data in the field. One needs to work on this strategy from the manufacturing, development, and deployment of IoT devices and their implementation infrastructure.

How to do it...

In this recipe we will try to use the security practices:

  1. Design the hardware such that it should be operational for the minimum required activity and time. Some IoT devices are battery-powered and can live a long life if this strategy is followed.
  2. Tampering with the device...
