Abstract

Embedded systems are systems, which are dedicated towards specific core applications, based on computer technology along with a combination of both software as well as hardware. These systems can be devised with limited potential to fulfill the stringent demands of the functioning application system, based on the reliability, valuation, power requirements as well as size. The permeation of embedded computers in human lives has become extremely profound with the development in technology. However, with increase in demands and numbers, security of such systems is always a matter of concern. This paper scrutinizes the various types of security strategies employed for embedded systems, discusses the issues faced by the systems, followed by the proposal for the employment of a blockchain based security strategy.
