AWS IoT Device Defender is now available in the AWS China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet and the AWS China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD. AWS IoT Device Defender is a fully managed service that helps you secure your fleet of IoT devices. It continuously audits device configurations for security vulnerabilities.
It also continuously monitors security metrics from devices and AWS IoT Core for deviations from what you have defined as appropriate behaviors for each device. AWS IoT Device Defender publishes alerts to AWS IoT Console, Amazon CloudWatch, and Amazon SNS when an audit fails or when behavior anomalies are detected. AWS IoT Device Defender also supports the ability for customers to use predefined mitigation actions to respond to audit findings and apply them at scale.

AWS IoT Events adds support for custom actions payloads and custom timers

Starting today, you can customize the message in any action triggered by an event or a state change using the new AWS IoT Events expression syntax. This allows you to add custom text and remove irrelevant data from the messages sent by AWS IoT Events. With this launch, you can also define timer durations and MQTT topic names unique to each device (or detector instance).

Simplify IoT device registration and easily move devices between AWS accounts with AWS IoT Core Multi-Account Registration, now generally available

Today, AWS announced the general availability of Multi-Account Registration, a new feature of AWS IoT Core that simplifies the device registration process and makes it possible to easily move devices between customers’ multiple AWS accounts in the same Region. This reduces the complexity of registering devices to AWS IoT Core and helps customers accelerate the development lifecycle for their IoT implementations.

Currently, many AWS IoT Core customers receive a unique, buyer-specific Certificate Authority (CA) from their component or device manufacturers. They then use this specific certificate when registering and connecting their devices to AWS IoT. AWS IoT Core Multi-Account Registration eliminates this step, allowing developers to register their device certificates without requiring a CA to be registered with AWS IoT.

Customers often manage different AWS accounts to differentiate between testing and production workloads. Today, they need to manage different certificates for a single device to connect to multiple accounts. Now, they can use Multi-Account Registration to register the same device certificate across their multiple AWS accounts within the same AWS Region. They can then easily move devices from one account to the other by simply changing the AWS IoT Core endpoint the devices connect to. This further simplifies the device registration process and helps them rapidly move from testing to production.

Semiconductor manufacturers can use the Multi-Account Registration feature to pre-configure silicon components like secure elements with X.509 certificates and private keys, ensuring devices built using these components are qualified to connect to AWS IoT by default. Customers can then purchase and use these pre-qualified components, which simplifies their development cycle and helps them accelerate their time to market. Currently, the following semiconductor manufacturers have parts pre-qualified to work with the Multi-Account Registration feature of AWS IoT Core: NXP EdgeLock SE050, Infineon’s OPTIGATM Trust M, Microchip ATECECC608, STM B-L4S5I-IOT01A Discovery kit, and Espressif ESP32-WROOM-32SE.

AWS IoT Core Multi-Account Registration is offered at no additional charge to AWS IoT Core pricing, and is now generally available in all Regions where AWS IoT Core is available. To learn more about this feature, please see the AWS IoT Core Multi-Account Registration Developer documentation.

AWS announces a 90%+ price reduction for AWS IoT Device Management Jobs

Today, we are reducing the price of the Device Jobs feature of AWS IoT Device Management by 90%+. AWS IoT Device Management is a service that enables customers to register, organize, monitor, and remotely manage their devices connected to AWS IoT Core. Device Jobs is a fully managed feature that enables customers to trigger remote actions on their connected IoT devices, such as OTA firmware updates, device reboots, factory resets, content delivery, and configuration changes.
We are reducing the current price per remote action for Device Jobs by 90%, and introducing a second pricing tier that provides an additional 50% discount on each incremental workloads over 250,000 remote actions per month.
For example, the new pricing is now the following for the US East (N. Virginia) region:
  • $0.0030 per remote action for the first 250,000 remote actions per month.
  • $0.0015 per remote action for incremental workloads over 250,000 remote actions per month.
See the new Device Jobs Pricing for all regions on the AWS IoT Device Management Pricing page.
Device Jobs is available in every Region where AWS IoT Device Management is currently available. AWS IoT Device Management customers automatically benefit from this new reduced pricing, which is effective May 1, 2020. To learn more, read our blog, visit the AWS IoT Device Management page, or get started with AWS IoT Device Management documentation.

AWS IoT Core is announcing a new feature called named shadow, which allows you to create multiple shadows for a single IoT device. A device's shadow is a JSON document that is used to store and retrieve state information for a device.

IoT devices often have multiple state data such as user settings, manufacturer configuration, and operational status. Each of these state data needs to be accessed by different users or at differing frequencies. Until today, you can only associate one shadow to a device and are required to store all sets of state data in one shadow. As a result, all users must have access to the entire shadow and can consequently read and update state data they shouldn’t. In addition, devices with large state data set may quickly run into the shadow size limit. Now, you can store different device state data into different shadows, and as a result access only the required state data when needed and reduce individual shadow size.

As part of this launch, IoT Rules Engine also adds support for named shadow. You can now retrieve device state data from a named shadow via get_thing_shadow rule function for your topic rule evaluation.

Named shadow is metered and charged the same way as the classic shadow customers use today, and is available in all AWS regions where AWS IoT Core is available.

AWS IoT SiteWise is now generally available

AWS IoT SiteWise, a managed service that makes it easy to collect data from your industrial equipment, model your physical assets, processes and facilities, quickly compute common industrial performance metrics, and create fully managed web applications to help analyze industrial equipment data, prevent costly equipment issues, and reduce production inefficiencies.
You can collect data from industrial equipment with AWS IoT SiteWise using a variety of options, including using MQTT or a REST API. You can also run the AWS IoT SiteWise gateway software on popular third-party industrial gateways and read data from OPC-UA data aggregators or historian databases. You can create models of your industrial facilities which can span a hierarchy of hundreds of thousands of assets. You can use these models to represent a single sensor, an assembly line, or a supply chain. You can link your equipment data to these models and store the data as time series in a managed, scalable, and efficient data store.

AWS IoT SiteWise allows you to compute metrics over your equipment data or transform the data using a built-in library of mathematical and statistical operators. For example, you can create and monitor common industrial metrics such as Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) for your production plants. You can also publish a live data stream from within AWS IoT SiteWise that contains measurements and computed data linked to your equipment. You can then set up MQTT subscriptions to these data streams through AWS IoT Core and use the data within your custom applications that can optimize factory output or identify equipment maintenance issues.
