The Enclave Device Blueprint for Confidential Computing at the Edge

A White Paper by Arm, Microsoft and Scalys 

To help protect data in the Internet of Things (IoT), developers are using a relatively new technique from the cloud, called confidential computing, to isolate sensitive operations in a Trusted Execution Environments during processing. IoT data remains protected when in use, so it’s easier to meet strict regulatory requirements for data privacy and introduce new use cases involving sensitive data. This paper summarizes confidential computing and its potential for edge and highlights how Arm and Microsoft are working with other industry leaders to make it easier to enable secure and isolated environments for confidential computing.  

IoT Signals Report

In 2019, Microsoft and Hypothesis embarked on an IoT Thought Leadership initiative, annually producing reports in the IoT Signals series. The goal of these reports is to better serve our partners and customers, help business leaders develop their own IoT strategies, and provide the most up-to-date research on IoT use across countries and industries. Previous reports focused on three pieces of research – an initial round conducted in February 2019, which focused on IoT across industries, a follow-up in October 2019 that took a deeper look into four key industries (energy, manufacturing, healthcare, and retail), and a 2020 update of both the original and the follow-up. In 2021, this current paper again builds off the success of the prior Signals papers, with new research uncovering fresh learnings and insights around the current and future state of IoT.  

Modern Industrial IoT Analytics on Azure

Customers leverage Azure Databricks for Industrial IoT Analytics

Simplifying IoT at scale with Cognizant and Microsoft

Scaling IoT isn’t easy, but by implementing the  best practices higlighted in this whitepaper, organizations will find their experience moving from proof of concept to production to be much simpler. One of the common threads in simplifying every element of the IoT lifecycle is to think about scale from day one, whether that means designing how IoT will interact with business processes or implementing a common data model as early as the proof of concept. By planning for scale from the beginning, organizations save themselves from a lot of complexity down the road. Microsoft and Cognizant aim to help organizations move to IoT at scale as quickly and easily as possible.

Azure IoT Learning Journey

This guide will show you how to create the next generation of applications using Azure IoT in only 4 weeks. By committing less than an hour each day—think coffee fueled morning ritual or mid-afternoon break— you’ll be able to build intelligent apps confidently with the tools and frameworks of your choice. Each week you’ll watch a video on foundational concepts of Azure IoT, complete a step-by-step training, and try what you’ve learned with a hands-on exercise. This will give you the expertise you need to successfully complete your Azure IoT Fundamentals certification. ​

This architecture describes terminology, technology principles, common configuration environments, and composition of Azure IoT services, physical devices, and Intelligent Edge Devices. The primary targets of this document are architects, system designers, developers, and other IoT technical decision makers who are building IoT solutions..    

Zero Trust Cybersecurity for the Internet of Things

In this paper we review the principles of Zero Trust security, and the aspects of IoT that make proactive application of Zero Trust to IoT different than its application to the workforce. The key capabilities of Zero Trust for IoT are defined for companies with an IoT strategy, and next steps highlight Microsoft solutions enabling your journey of Zero Trust for IoT.  

Ecosystem Solutions for 360-Degree Industrial IoT Security

This whitepaper is intended to provide a view on how to improve  security in IT and OT environments based on the experiences  of Microsoft, ABB, and NXP.

Forged within the Microsoft Azure ecosystem, the collaboration  between ABB, Microsoft, and NXP provides end-to-end, co-engineered solutions for the industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) that help reduce risk, time to market, and cost. 

Secure IoT begins with Zero-Touch Provisioning at scale

The path to secure IoT deployments starts with a hardware root-of-trust at the device level, a simple concept that  belies the complexity of managing a chain of trust that extends from every edge device to the core of the network. The solution to this management challenge, based on a coordinated effort of domain experts, is a zero touch “chip-to-cloud” provisioning service for certificates-based identity lifecycle management for connected devices.
