What exactly will you do?
The Internet of Things (IoT) is becoming more and more ubiquitous in our lives – at the workplace, in our homes, and in public places. Many of these devices have been developed with security as an afterthought, based on hardware that is already outdated when it is released, or both. As many of these IoT devices are, in fact, computing systems running firmware and software similar to that also running in computers, tablets, and cell phones, they are increasingly interesting for attackers as points-of-entry into networks and other computing infrastructure. Many IoT devices also contain sensors that capture data and information that should not fall into the hands of unauthorized parties, such as private audio and video data, and movement and other behavioral patterns. Data captured or generated by IoT devices is in many cases sent to and processed by cloud service providers, often without the complete knowledge of the end users.
