Protecting smart devices and applications throughout the IoT ecosystem

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.

Protecting smart devices and applications throughout the IoT ecosystem

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.

Read this report to find out:

  • Why IoT security can’t be bolted on but rather must be built into an application from the ground up.
  • How an audit trail can be used to understand how the attack was performed, establish accountability and even potentially prosecute the wrong-doers.
  • Why students remotely took control of the pacemaker implanted in a robotic dummy patient
  • The impact of disabling the wheels and brakes of a popular sports utility vehicle (SUV).
