  • Modern software development practices dominated by component-based engineering and short development cycles have largely been a catalyst for rapid advancements in technology. These practices, however, have also resulted in an epidemic of known vulnerabilities baked into third-party software components of IoT applications and devices. These widespread security flaws, many of which are critical in nature, often remain unnoticed or unaddressed throughout the software or device lifecycle, posing significant risks to the people and organizations that rely on them.

    As software continues to permeate the ever-expanding Internet of Things, software vulnerabilities represent a greater and greater threat. IoT devices, like traditional computers, run on software that is susceptible to malicious attacks. As more devices become connected, understanding how to identify and manage security vulnerabilities within widely used third-party software components is critical for all stakeholders, including manufacturers and end-users.

    In this webinar, our diverse panel of security experts will:
    •Propose an expanded definition and understanding of IoT and the stakeholders at risk
    •Present research highlighting the pervasiveness of vulnerabilities in third-party software components of IoT devices
    •Draw some conclusions about the state of software security in IoT today
    •Discuss some simple approaches to addressing these problems

  • Hot Analytics & Transaction Processing in a single Operational NoSQL Database Recorded: Oct 22 2013 63 mins
    Srini Srinivasan, Aerospike, Co-founder & VP Engineering & Ops
    As a developer, if you are building a consumer facing application, you are always looking to create the most compelling user experience by performing instant, on-demand analysis of current behavior. To do this, you need to store the most valuable and relevant recent data based on user's recent interactions and access this data in real-time. The system that provides the necessary real-time platform is usually a key value store. In addition, models are generated using offline systems (e.g., Hadoop) and fed into the real-time database on a periodic basis.

    The ability to do fast key value operations, combined with more sophisticated queries on recent or hot data could change the game, increasing the level of user engagement, with more sophisticated behavioral models that change in real time. What is the most efficient and simplest way to perform complex computations on the most recently written real-time data (hot analytics)? In this session, we will describe how to extend an operational database to perform more sophisticated computations like queries using secondary indexes and complex user-defined aggregation functions while allowing high performance read/write transactions to proceed in real-time.
  • Ensuring 100 Percent Database Uptime for Real-Time Big Data Recorded: Aug 21 2013 40 mins
    Brian Bulkowski, Founder and CTO, Aerospike
    Internet environments for consumer-facing applications routinely demand high throughput and sub-millisecond latencies for read/write transactions against terabytes of data, and service-level agreements demand 100% uptime.

    This session will review 10 proven practices for ensuring the high performance and availability that interactive Internet applications demand—even during power outages or natural disasters.

    The lessons include:

    -When scaling, keep it the architecture simple, so there are fewer points of failure. For instance, load balancers may fail at high transaction rates even as the database is cruising.

    -Provide full end-to-end automation. People make mistakes, and anything that’s not automated will have production issues.

    #3. Keep the system asynchronous; otherwise one small failure will quickly snowball into an avalanche of degradation.

    -Keep metrics of everything, because scale tends to creep up from behind, and no one wants to be caught blind.

    Tune in to hear them all!
