Finding the Right Security Level for Your IoT Application
Many of the things we use on a daily basis are becoming smart and connected. The Internet of Things (IoT) will improve our lives by helping us reach our fitness goals, reduce resource consumption, increase productivity, and track and secure our assets. Many embedded developers realize the potential benefits of the IoT and are actively developing various applications, from connected home devices to wearables to home security systems. However, along with these benefits come risks. No one wants to design an application that's prone to hacking or data theft. Undesirable events like high-profile hacks can lead to serious brand damage and loss of customer trust, and in the worst case, slow down or permanently reduce the adoption of IoT. Many IoT device makers acknowledge that security is becoming increasingly important for their application or product. But many also have limited in-house expertise. Adding further to the challenge, there are a number of standards and recommendations that represent a wide array of different security levels. One of the reasons for the lack of coherent security recommendations is that the IoT is not represented by a few large, similar applications, but rather by a long tail of many different applications, with different threat scenarios and different security requirements. This session will help developers understand and identify the right level of security for their IoT applications.
