The Internet of Things (IoT) presents security challenges that left unmitigated could pose serious risk to organisations. For example, consider the lack of human supervision of thousands upon thousands of connected devices which precludes using some of the most effective security methods that have been developed for and proven out in cloud applications.
Many connected devices – such as automobiles, power plants, and medical devices -- could cause serious damage if they are hacked. Even companies that have not consciously deployed IoT applications are at risk because many of their devices may already be intentionally or inadvertently connected to the Internet. Completely securing IoT solutions requires collaboration among several players including the infrastructure provider, the IoT platform provider, the application developer and the company that controls the devices.
This white paper will address IoT security best practices at the device and application level such as data and network traffic encryption, audit trails, granular permissions and visibility and a secure software development life cycle (SDLC). Following these best practices will make it possible to develop smart, connected products that deliver real business value to your company and its customers while protecting against unauthorized and malevolent intruders.
