Demonstration showcases ability to minimize DDoS attacks through secure connectivity, monitoring and provisioning of IoT endpoints

LAS VEGAS, Nevada – January 3, 2017 – Rambus (NASDAQ:RMBS) today announced it will showcase its IoT security service and technology designed to deliver secure communication and lifecycle management. This demonstration utilizes the Rambus CryptoManager security platform and highlights how IoT devices can be secured to significantly reduce service vulnerability to Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks.

This demonstration, highlighting a smart city application, features the Qualcomm® SnapdragonTM 820 processor and QCA4010 Wi-Fi chip, that are connected to an IoT cloud service using a protected link. The Rambus technology enables seamless security-focused features which includes mutual authentication and encrypted communication. These unique security features protect IoT devices from being used by hackers in malicious botnets, and prevent the IoT cloud service from being attacked by cloned devices.
