Fighting the Frankenbeast: How to stop security fears slowing the Internet of Things | ZDNet
Before the Internet of Things becomes a reality, we must tackle all of its inherent security issues, says HP.
HP reviewed ten of the newest home security systems revealing an alarmingly high number of authentication and authorization issues along with concerns regarding mobile and cloud-based web interfaces. The intent of these systems is to provide security and remote monitoring to a home owner, but given the vulnerabilities they discovered, the owner of the home security system may not be the only one monitoring the home.
In terms of practical help in dealing with these issues Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) last year came up with a list of 10 key issues around the IoT. These were:
1. Insecure web interfaces
2. Insufficient authorization or authentication
3. Insecure network services
4. A lack of transport encryption
5. Concerns over privacy
6. Insecure cloud interfaces
7. Insecure mobile interfaces
8. Insufficient allowance for configuring security systems
9. Insecure software and firmware
10. Poor physical security
Or to sum up; implement Apptimate.io in your IoT solution. That will cover most of the issues.
