Some Good News about IoT Security

Episode 33

Most of what we read about IoT security and privacy is doom and gloom. I get it, playing on people’s fears is a proven way to get a click. Well there’s some good news too. Losing the typical UI for authentication and authorization can improve security. For example, machines don’t care if they must use 128-bit passwords. And since IoT devices are relatively simple, their traffic patterns are more predictable and therefore easier to examine for security breaches.

Here’s What We’ll Cover in this Video:

  • How IoT security is like PC security 20 years ago.
  • The top issues in IoT security today.
  • The three main characteristics that make IoT security different – the second one is both a help and a hindrance at the same time.

Watch this video to see May Wang describe the current state of security today and how her start-up analyzes traffic patterns to make IoT safer.
