Security for the ‘Internet of Things’ (Video) posting an Slashdot provides one view to security of Internet of Things. What happens when your oven is on the Internet? A malicious hacker might be able to get it so hot that it could start a fire. Or a prankster might set your alarm in the middle of night. A hacker can use your wireless security camera to hack into your home network. Watch the video at Security for the ‘Internet of Things’ (Video) page (or read transcript) to get the idea what can happen and how to protect against it. Remember: There’s always going to be things that are going to break. There’s always going to be.
Mark: “So I think a lot of the system on chips that we’re seeing that are actually going in Internet of Thing devices, a lot of companies are coming up, take an Arduino or Raspberry Pi, very cool chipsets, very easy to deploy and build on. We’re seeing smaller and smaller scales of those, which actually enable engineers to put those into small little shells. We are obviously kind of at this early part of 3D printing. So your ability to manufacture an entire device with a couple of bucks is becoming a reality and obviously if you have a really niche product that might be really popular in Kickstarter, you could actually deploy tens of thousands of those with a successful crowd-funding campaign and never really know about the actual security of that product before it goes to market.”
