Overview of this book

ESP32 is a versatile microcontroller and a great starting point for anyone venturing into the IoT realm, but its configuration and interfacing of sensors can be challenging for new users. Arduino Integrated Development Environment (IDE) simplifies programming, uploading code, and utilization of ESP32 capabilities, enabling users to incorporate it into their IoT projects with ease. This book will help you learn the essentials of sensing, networking, data processing, and applications with ESP32, laying a strong foundation for further IoT development. Starting with ESP32 and Arduino Ide 2.0 basics, you'll first explore practical implementation examples of interfacing sensors with ESP32. These examples will also teach you how to interface the ESP32 camera and display modules with ESP32. As you progress, you’ll get to grips with IoT network and data protocols, as well as the many options they unlock within IoT applications. The book will also help you leverage your newly acquired knowledge with exciting projects ranging from smart connected devices to data loggers and automation. By the end of this book, you'll confidently navigate ESP32 projects with newfound knowledge and skills, know what IoT protocol to select for your applications, and successfully build and deploy your own IoT projects.

Security concepts in IoT

In the field of the Internet of Things (IoT), ensuring robust security is paramount to safeguarding connected devices and the data they generate. Several key security concepts are integral to fortifying IoT ecosystems. Some of them are defined here:

  • Authentication: Authentication is a critical security concept in IoT, verifying the identity of devices and users seeking access to a network. This process involves confirming the legitimacy of entities through various mechanisms such as passwords, biometrics, or digital certificates. By implementing strong authentication protocols, IoT systems can stop unauthorized access and mitigate the risk of compromised devices compromising the entire network.
  • Encryption: Encryption plays a pivotal role in securing data transmitted between IoT devices and networks. Employing encryption algorithms ensures that the information exchanged remains confidential and tamper-resistant. Both symmetric and asymmetric encryption...
