Following the news that the Mirai IoT worm could be adapted to survive device robots, enabling hackers to build bigger and more disruptive botnets, Cesare Garlati, chief security strategist at prpl Foundation commented below.

Cesare Garlati, Chief Security Strategist at prpl Foundation:

 “The Mirai worm that could be adapted to survive device reboots is a very harrowing example of why creating device hardware with a built in root of trust is so vital to the security of IoT. In essence, there is no device security if there is no signed/secure boot and this requires a resilient root of trust forged in the hardware as described in prpl’s Security Guidance for Critical Areas of Embedded Computing.”
