Overview of this book

The Internet of Things market increased a lot in the past few years and IoT development and its adoption have showed an upward trend. Analysis and predictions say that Enterprise IoT platforms are the future of IoT. AWS IoT is currently leading the market with its wide range of device support SDKs and versatile management console. This book initially introduces you to the IoT platforms, and how it makes our IoT development easy. It then covers the complete AWS IoT Suite and how it can be used to develop secure communication between internet-connected things such as sensors, actuators, embedded devices, smart applications, and so on. The book also covers the various modules of AWS: AWS Greengrass, AWS device SDKs, AWS IoT Platform, AWS Button, AWS Management consoles, AWS-related CLI, and API references, all with practical use cases. Near the end, the book supplies security-related best practices to make bi-directional communication more secure. When you've finished this book, you'll be up-and-running with the AWS IoT Suite, and building IoT projects.

Building a secure AWS IoT for your IoT project

An IoT project can be treated as an IT project in general. You should think of security issues when you implement an IoT project. Security specifications should be prepared during the first stage of the IoT project. People usually think about security aspects after a system has been built. The disadvantage of this approach is that we probably need to change more features in the design and implementation of the IoT project.

In this section, we will review some of the actions related to security views. You have probably implemented these security actions in your IoT projects.

Designing and implementing

When you design an IoT project, you should also think about security features in your IoT project. Security features can enforce security in an IoT project. The following are some security features that could be implemented in your IoT projects:

  • Securing IoT devices
  • Supporting a secure protocol such as TLS/SSL
  • Secure gateway
