Tony Jeff: The Internet of things

You’ve probably heard in the news recently about hackers who managed to seize control of a Jeep Cherokee’s on-board system, causing the vehicle to crash in a ditch.

Dominic Basulto: Six reasons the Internet of Things will exceed its already soaring hype

Just when you thought the Internet of Things couldn’t possibly live up to its hype, along comes a blockbuster, 142-page report from McKinsey Global Institute (“The Internet of Things: Mapping the Value Beyond the Hype”) that says, if anything, we’re underestimating the potential economic impact of the Internet of Things. By 2025, says McKinsey, the potential economic impact of having “sensors and actuators connected by networks to computing systems” could be more than $11 trillion annually. According to McKinsey, there are six reasons we may be underhyping the Internet of Things.

Lisa Vaas: The NSA is funding a 'safer' Internet of Things

The National Security Agency (NSA) is paying to build backdoors security into the Internet of Things (IoT).

(Granted, it's not like we can presume that the NSA wouldn't build in backdoors, given the history of backdoors in iPhones, iPads, and routers, et al. But as Naked Security's Mark Stockley pointed out at the time, why would the NSA bother to build in back doors when so many IoT devices are wide open anyway?)

Christina Mulligan: The Online Trust Alliance aims to secure the Internet of Things

Security for the Internet of Things (IoT) can be a huge hurdle for those trying to develop embedded devices. Instead of just having to worry about the software, developers have to worry about the software, the data, the device, the application and the back end. To help improve IoT security, the Online Trust Alliance (OTA) has released its Internet of Things Trust Framework.

Charlie Osborne: Internet of Things device security degrades over time

The security of smart home devices must become sustainable to keep consumers safe, the Open Trust Alliance has warned.

The Internet of Things (IoT) and the concept of the connected home is an emerging industry. IoT devices can make our daily lives more efficient, but manufacturers are yet to get up to speed when it comes to security -- and a constant stream of research concerning smart systems has revealed just how easy it can be to exploit vulnerabilities and manipulate these kinds of devices.
