The topic of IoT security is complex and has broad scope. Beyond simple physical device security and the protection of the communications channel from prying eyes are considerations around authenticating devices and IoT data aggregation hubs, ensuring integrity of device messages, securing the wider physical footprint of geographically distributed IoT sensors resulting in a larger attack surface, ongoing patching and management of the hardware and other considerations. This talk will explore the definition of security in the context of IoT, look at threats including some interesting edge cases and will explore options for securing the IoT ecosystem.
