How to Easily and Securely Connect Devices to AWS IoT – AWS Online Tech Talks – #AWS

You have a lot to consider when you build your IoT applications such as which devices to connect, how to control and monitor things, what data to collect, and how to analyze it. However, all IoT applications must be built on a scalable and secure foundation. Join us to learn how to use AWS IoT Core to easily and securely connect devices to the cloud, and why AWS IoT Core can support billions of devices and trillions of messages. We will explore the key features of AWS IoT Core such as the rules engine, registry, device shadow, message broker, authentication, and the Device SDK. These capabilities currently support use cases across the consumer, industrial, and commercial space. You will hear from Leviton, an innovator in connected homes, about how they are using AWS IoT Core to support their Decora Smart WiFi products. Decora Smart WiFi is a line of in-wall dimmers and switches, and plug-in outlets. In addition, we will discuss how AWS IoT Device Defender compliments the security capabilities in AWS IoT Core. AWS IoT Device Defender audits your fleet to ensure it adheres to security best practices, detects abnormal device behavior, alerts you about security issues as they arise, and recommends mitigation actions. We will conclude with a demo.

Learning Objectives:
– Understand the features of AWS IoT and how to use them
– Articulate architectures for IoT applications across commercial, consumer, and industrial use cases
– Hints and tips for keeping devices secure
