Strategic Principles for Securing the IoT

Original release date: November 15, 2016

DHS has released a set of Strategic Principles for Securing the Internet of Things (IoT) to help inform consumers, operators and manufacturers in their decision-making regarding networked and networkable devices. While the IoT can provide efficiency, convenience, and interactivity features that are attractive, the IoT can also be vulnerable to manipulation by malicious actors, as observed in recent distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks. US-CERT recommends reviewing the Strategic Principles for Securing the Internet of Things to learn more.
