Top 5 Things to Know About IOT Security

The Internet of things (IoT) is the network of physical devices, vehicles, home appliances and

otheritems embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators& network connectivity which

enable these objects to connect and exchange data. Each thing is uniquely identifiable through its

embedded computing system but is able to inter-operate within the

existing Internet infrastructure.

IoT security is the area of endeavor concerned with safeguarding connected devices and

networks in the Internet of things (IoT).

The Internet of Things involves the increasing prevalence of objects and entities – known, in this

context as things -- provided with unique identifiers and the ability to automatically transfer data

over a network. Much of the increase in IoT communication comes from computing devices and

embedded sensor systems used in industrial machine-to-machine (M2M) communication, smart

energy grids, home and building automation, vehicle to vehicle communication and wearable

computing devices.

The main problem is that because the idea of networking appliances and other objects is

relatively new, security has not always been considered in product design. IoT products are

often sold with old and unpatched embedded operating systems and software. Furthermore,

purchasers often fail to change the default passwords on smart devices -- or if they do change

them, fail to select sufficiently strong passwords. To improve security, an IoT device that needs

to be directly accessible over the Internet, should be segmented into its own network and have

network access restricted. The network segment should then be monitored to identify potential

anomalous traffic, and action should be taken if there is a problem.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly emerging as the manifestation of the Networked Society

vision: where everything that benefits from a connection is connected. But the assumptions of

trust which formed the backdrop to the early development of the internet no longer apply in the

early stages of IoT development. Privacy and security concerns are ever increasing, especially

given the growing significance of IoT in corporate, government, and critical infrastructure


So, five main things you should know about IoT are:

1.Cost Savings

In addition to the optimal utilization of energy and resources, the IoT helps alleviate the

problems associated with bottlenecks, breakdowns and system damages. IoT fundamentally

proves to be very helpful to people in their daily routines by making the appliances communicate

to each other in an effective manner thereby saving and conserving energy and cost. Allowing

the data to be communicated and shared between devices and then translating it into our required

way, it makes our systems efficient.

2 communication


IoT allows physical devices to stay connected and better communicate, which creates greater

quality control. IoT encourages the communication between devices, also famously known as

Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communication. Because of this, the physical devices are able to

stay connected and hence the total transparency is available with lesser inefficiencies and greater


3.Automation and Control

Automation leads to uniformity in tasks, quality of service and control of day-to-day tasks

without human intervention. Machine-to-machine communication also helps maintain

transparency throughout the process. Due to physical objects getting connected and controlled

digitally and centrally with wireless infrastructure, there is a large amount of automation and

control in the workings. Without human intervention, the machines are able to communicate with

each other leading to faster and timely output.

4.Efficient and Saves Time

The machine-to-machine interaction provides better efficiency, hence; accurate results can be

obtained fast. This results in saving valuable time. Instead of repeating the same tasks every day,

it enables people to do other creative jobs.

5.Privacy and Security

As many of our everyday appliances, machines and services become connected to the internet,

much more information is readily available. It makes it harder to keep confidential information

out of the hands of hackers and other unauthorized users. Since there is involvement of multiple

devices and technologies, there is monitoring by multiple companies, which directly questions

the security over privacy issues. Data storage and retrieval also becomes a prime concern for the

companies as all of them are involved at the same time. In case of keeping a single company, it

may lead to a domination question.

Ultimately, you have to agree that the Internet of Things presents new technological

opportunities across various dimensions. If properly implemented, it could offer a host of new

possibilities for your business as well.
