There are a vast number of embedded devices in a wireless network, such as wireless routers, handheld terminals and access points. In the fierce competition of the communications and consuming electronics market, there is a real-world problem: A design house takes several years to design an embedded product. In this paper, firstly, the authors describe the piracy problem of embedded products. Then they formulate the security features of anti-piracy embedded products. Finally, they prove that the anti-piracy measure using encryption of embedded products may mitigate the security strength.
