Internet of Things (IoT) Security: What are the Issues?

The IoT security issues are multifaceted, including the traditional network security problems, the security problems of computing systems and the special IoT security problems in the process of Internet of things perception. The following is a brief introduction to some special security issues in the Internet of things system. Information leakage caused by tag scanning

AWS IoT security-each connected device or client must have a credential to interact with AWS IoT

Each connected device or client must have a credential to interact with AWS IoT. All traffic to and from AWS IoT is sent securely over Transport Layer Security (TLS). AWS cloud security mechanisms protect data as it moves between AWS IoT and other AWS services.   You are responsible for managing device credentials (X.509 certificates,

4 Internet of Things(IoT) Medical Devices That Are Vulnerable to Hacks

By Ludovic F. Rembert, Head of Research at Privacy Canada. The Internet of Things (IoT) has made it easier for point-of-care centers to track and analyze sensitive medical data for their patients. But with so much confidential data transmitting to and from physicians, it’s crucial that IoT medical devices use safe communication protocols that encrypt

Internet of Things Security Threats

Connected devices are creating great experiences for consumers, but they also represent brand new targets for hackers. The Internet of Things (IoT) and cybercriminal activity share two important traits: they are largely invisible to the naked eye, and they surround us at any given moment. As more organizations use a mix of sensors and sophisticated

IoT security and the consumer: the challenges and education question

Many years ago, when the Internet became popular, the Belgian government hired us to set up a site to educate consumers and businesses on security risks and measures to take, in order to use the Internet safely. It was part of a major awareness campaign. With the Internet of Things, predominantly in a consumer electronics and consumer IoT context, it’s


The ETSI Technical Committee on Cybersecurity (TC CYBER) today unveils ETSI EN 303 645, a standard for cybersecurity in the Internet of Things that establishes a security baseline for internet-connected consumer products and provides a basis for future IoT certification schemes. Based on the ETSI specification TS 103 645, EN 303 645 went through National Standards Organization

IoT security challenges

IoT security is the technology area concerned with safeguarding connected devices and networks in the internet of things (IoT). IoT involves adding internet connectivity to a system of interrelated computing devices, mechanical and digital machines, objects, animals and/or people. Each “thing” is provided a unique identifier and the ability to automatically transfer data over a network. Allowing
