Secure IoT data exchange through Dropbox

January 12, 2017 // By Julien Happich
As part of its IoT offerings, Segger's novel Dropbox client is aimed at projects which need to manage various amounts of data, by loading or storing files, even large data files, in a secure and reliable way using the public Dropbox API.

Typical use cases include firmware updates, log files, and any information shared between different IoT devices and/or a central server. Dropbox' proven reliability, unlimited capacity and the ability to store data for an unlimited time are well suited for many connected applications. Segger's Dropbox client support secure data exchange using SSL/TLS and a standards-compliant TCP/IP stack with a socket interface. The client requires Segger's emSSL transport layer security (TLS) product. The integration with Segger's embOS/IP networking stack enables Dropbox use on small microcontrollers. A commercial license provides access to the full source code while a PC evaluation package is also available, that runs in just minutes.
