Immunizing Edge Computing

Ashish Garg and Bipin Gupta


Edge computing aims to take computation execution resources out of traditional data centers and bring them as close as possible to the location where they are needed. Hand-held devices, appliances, or physical units, typically within or at the boundary (edge) of access networks are providing low latency, high bandwidth, and more secure computing and storage.

How can businesses in the telecom, automotive, manufacturing, and IoT industries protect themselves from cyber risks if they employ edge computing? Learn about edge computing in detail, its meaning to different sectors, and security threats such as DDoS, side-channel, malware injection, and authentication and authorization attacks. Each threat description includes possible defense mechanism solutions.
