Had a few minutes to play on VR. Decided to go to on a haunted ride into an insane asylum and shoot some clowns. https://youtu.be/OsfRlh3Qr5M
Securely sending WiFi creds to an IoT device is an interesting problem.
Plenty of easy ways to do this insecurely, but as soon as you try and do it the right way you introduce complexity to the user, or a BOM and complexity increase to the device.
I can see why it's overlooked.
Right now I can see ESP32's Smart Config with AES being a sensible middle ground to use. Small inconvenience to the user, but manufacturer needs to resist the temptation to provision the same AES Key in every device.
Next week I shall be hacking on the ESP32 with the FreeRTOS kernel.
I know next to nothing about these things but I fully expect to get a working -something- by the end of it.
End goal is to get a -secure- something built and to understand the nuances which could lead to problems down the line so others have something to reference when they want to create their internet doodad.
@thegibson Do you have any resources covering the elements in the new logo? I've translated the Latin but don't really understand what it's trying to say, and what is the relevance of the number 3319?
A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
