There are tens of billions of internet connected devices in the world today, and the growth of IOT shows no signs of slowing. But the security of these devices is being left to the whims of the non-technical, non-security-conscious end users. This approach has led to the rise of IOT botnets, crypto currency miners, privacy violations and casinos getting hacked through the aquarium. We’ve dealt with these problems on desktop operating systems, but the small, constrained systems IOT devices use lack many of the protections that we’ve come to take for granted. The steady stream of security breaches from IOT devices clearly demonstrates that our current approaches are not working. What will it take to put the ‘S’ in IOT?
