IoTA 12 - 8.3.16

Show notes:
Business Wire reports that Stanley Healthcare and InterSystems partner to bring IoT to healthcare. InterSystems develops connected care platforms and solutions that enable clinicians to capture, share, understand and act on the data, including the HeathShare informatics platform. Stanley makes the AeroScout real-time location system which helps keep track of patients and medical equipment.
Also from Business Wire, Davra Networks has won the "Best Overall Platform" award at the recent IoT Evolution Battle of the Platforms competition presented by TMC and Crossfire Media. They also saw wins in Transportation, Smart Cities, and Manufacturing. Their platform specializes in real-time monitoring, tracking, and data management.
At this year's Black Hat USA conference, IoT security was a huge topic report At the conference 50 proposals for seminars concerning this concern were submitted, with 13 being accepted.
And my favorite story of the day. GA Tech was just awarded a 9.4 million grant from DARPA to develop a new technique to wirelessly monitor IoT devices for malicious software, without affecting the operation of the device. The technique will rely on receiving and analyzing side channel signals, which are electromagnetic emissions that are produced unintentionally by the device during normal operations. By comparing the emissions to an expected baseline, researchers will be able to determine that something else is running on the device.
