Google dipped its toe in the waters of the ambiguously defined "Internet of Things" (IoT) at I/O 2015 when it announced the Brillo operating system. Today, Google has announced Android Things, the new name for Brillo, is ready for public testing. Developers can grab the images right now for several hardware platforms. Android Things is based on Android, but it's been simplified and polished to run smoothly on low-power IoT devices. Android Things makes use of tools that developers are already familiar with like Android Studio, Google Play Services, and Google Cloud Platform. This platform will use Google's Weave communication protocol, which is also getting an update to add compatibility for Google Assistant. Philips Hue and Samsung SmartThings already work with Weave.

The drive to connect everything to the Internet and build the Internet of Things has created a new security nightmare. Millions of devices with little to no active maintenance are now permanently online, enabling the creation of massive botnets as the devices go unpatched and unloved. Microsoft today announced its solution: Azure Sphere. Azure Sphere has three components. First is a new class of microcontrollers (MCUs) that supports seven critical hardware features that Microsoft says are a necessary foundation to build secure systems. These include support for unforgeable encryption keys protected by hardware, the ability to update system software, and hardware-enforced compartmentalization between software components. Microsoft has some track record in building such systems, in particular with the Xbox, which is designed to have tamper-proof hardware that's securely updatable. The MCUs include Microsoft-designed silicon. The custom parts will be available royalty-free to … [Read more...] about Microsoft’s bid to secure the Internet of Things: Custom Linux, custom chips, Azure
