IoT Security: A Doomsday Scenario Waiting to Unfold
Cheap and scalable security solutions need to be employed to secure numerous devices, and to identify the attacks and mitigate them as they unfold.
Jun 20, 2018—
The adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) technologies is gaining traction, and IoT devices are becoming a common feature in homes, offices and factories, as well as on streets. Given how massive the IoT is expected to become in several years, one cannot help but think about the ramifications of a large-scale cyber-attack aimed at smart devices. Since IoT devices are physical devices deployed in the real world, hacking these could have potentially catastrophic physical consequences.
But since no one can anticipate an IoT on-off attack, no one can prepare standby power, and outages are thus expected. In addition, power production, transportation and storage costs related to the concept of a smart grid could be considerable.
