The internet of things covers a wide range of devices, from smart speakers to medical devices, but the National Institute of Standards and Technology is looking to build a common foundation of cybersecurity practices for IoT manufacturers and consumers.

At an IoT workshop at its headquarters in Gaithersburg, Maryland, NIST sought feedback from industry partners on an internal report released in June that focused on next steps for IoT security and privacy. Tuesday’s meeting also stemmed from a roadmap the agency released in April that laid out areas where the agency could further advance its work on its cybersecurity framework.
