Technology Strategies for IoT Security
The Internet of Things (IoT) is a rapidly expanding part of the global information economy, yet security exploits show that more attention needs to be paid to making the IoT safe. Companies deploying IoT infrastructure, whether for their own use or to provide IoT services, as well as the manufacturers of IoT devices, should look to build in security from day one. This report describes the challenges inherent in securing IoT devices. Key points include:
- IoT security differs from conventional IT security in multiple ways.
- As the IoT expands, so does the need to secure it.
- Security for IoT devices cannot be “one size fits all.”
- All IoT devices require discovery, identification, and protection.
