Hacking the IoT: An Overview of Technology Innovation in IoT Security

September 10, 2018 | State of the Market Report

As the internet of things (IoT) becomes ubiquitous, so do IoT vulnerabilities that attackers can exploit in our homes, devices, vehicles, and infrastructure. There are fundamental differences between protecting IoT systems and protecting IT systems, and therefore, the technologies and strategies for IoT security are different from those of conventional IT cybersecurity – although many IoT security solutions are inspired by and adapted from IT environments. In this report, we present a taxonomy for IoT security technologies based on the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, identify key innovation areas within this framework, and discuss important considerations for clients implementing IoT security in their products or processes.
