Sizzle – the world’s smallest secure web server

Posted by Bill Bradford on Jan 17, 2005

The Next Generation Crypto Team at Sun have developed “Sizzle“, the world’s smallest secure web server.

This server is the size of a U.S. twenty-five cent coin and is designed to be embedded in a wide array of tiny devices (home appliances, light fixtures, utility meters, sprinkler systems, personal medical devices, temperature and pressure sensors) for secure monitoring and control across the Internet. Sizzle runs on the Berkeley/Crossbow “motes” — battery-powered, wireless devices equipped with an 8-bit microprocessor, 128KB of FLASH and a mere 4KB of RAM.
