Speaker Bio

Project Haystack makes it easier to analyze the data from various devices by implementing tagging. The data is accessible remotely via HTTP but is that secure enough?  Implementing HTTP over SSL on the device can help alleviate this issue by providing encryption. The use of HTTPS also provides security by ensuring the identity of the device with the use of certificates. But there is some burden on the end device for implementing SSL and depending on the device memory, it may not be possible to add SSL. The use of a separate device providing VPN in this scenario can help. VPNs can provide security and also help in hiding your end devices and infrastructure. Different VPN implementations will be discussed.
