The Internet of Things Security Foundation (IoTSF) ManySecured Special Interest Group (SIG) is working to outline high level solutions to a design flaw/problem that affects millions of IoT devices and standard Internet routers. We are also encouraging the development of working prototypes of potential solutions that can be tested for scale and usability. February
When directed to manage an IoT device or router using a browser, passwords and all communications are typically passed over an unencrypted connection. This is a security vulnerability which needs attention.
With the support of the ManySecured project partners, the IoT Security Foundation has created a Special Interest Group (SIG) to facilitate Interoperable Security through Collaboration with stakeholders in the IoT ecosystem value chain.
By Jon Geater, CTO of Jitsuin, you can read the original article here The European Union NIS Directive represents a necessary step toward securing Critical National Infrastructure (CNI) and encouraging best practice to protect essential services. Yet there are many challenges to overcome in the next few short years before regulatory
The IoT Security Foundation is pleased to announce the IoT Security Champion Award is now open for applications. Now in its second year, the award seeks to identify and celebrate organisations which demonstrate good IoT security stewardship as part of the IoTSF mission to raise security standards and drive best practice
The IoT Security Foundation (IoTSF) has published a new, free to download whitepaper today titled: “Can you trust your smart building? Understanding the security issues and why they are important to you”. It is aimed at a broad range of stakeholders that together design, specify, procure, install/integrate, validate, operate and maintain building automation systems (BAS). It is specifically targeted at building owners, facility managers, technology providers, architects and installers.
Deploying IoT securely on healthcare networks: new IoT Security Foundation whitepaper outlines best practice for healthcare IT teams & OEMs
Free whitepaper addresses underlying principles for securely deploying IoT systems on healthcare networks and how to cut risks for patients and their data. The use of IoT systems in healthcare creates significant opportunities for both OEMs and healthcare providers, but the inherent connectivity coupled with their use outside controlled hospital environments adds a risk to both patients and their data – risks that need to be managed.
