At the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) held in San Francisco, Intel Corp. has announced that it has expanded its Internet of Things (IoT) Developer program to include Intel’s IoT Commercial Developer Resources and Kits.
Under the program, Intel hopes to provide fast, flexible and scalable path for IoT solutions with a set of resources, developer kits, tools, knowledge and technical support. This works for those who are starting with Intel’s IoT program or those whom have already been working with it.
The kit allows developers a clear path from prototype to production for IoT products that scale in performance with advanced security and ease of manageability from device to cloud, Intel says.
According to Bill Pearson, director of IoT developer programs at Intel, the commercial developer kit includes an Intel Galileo Board, a variety of sensors and Wind River software. The kits provide an end-to-end solution of APIs, security, cloud connectivity and integrated development environments (IDEs) that developers need to get started on IoT devices.
In other Intel IoT news at IDF, Intel says both Microchip Technology Inc. and Atmel Corp. have adopted Intel’s Enhanced Privacy ID (EPID) technology. EPID is a device authentication tool that provides both security and privacy for IoT devices. The tool allows service providers to verify that an end-user belongs to a group authorized to access the service. It also helps protect end-user privacy, enabling users to receive the service without revealing their identity—an important key with future Internet-connected mobile devices.
