Each day, Another Security Attack Vector...
Perhaps IoT devices will have to avoid using commodity chips to prevent common malware attacks? It looks like more and more defenses are being outsmarted by the black hats every day.

Re: IoT Certifications
Well, maybe someone should be watching out for a mysterious rise (and sudden selloff) of printer stocks....? :P

Re: IoT Certifications
That's a great idea! I won't tell anyone it was yours when the criminal enterprises begin to buy up printer manufacturer stock ;)

Re: IoT Certifications
Considering that the price of printer ink can be more than gold by weight, zombie printers might attack office supply budgets first. And maybe the hackers will profit by buying stock in printer manufacturers?

Re: IoT Certifications
I've seen reports of insecure printers causing problems. I hadn't thought of receipt printers getting hit too. Do you think we're looking at some kind of zombie printer attack?

Re: IoT Certifications
I think the more likely downfall will be printers. Unsecured printers are everywhere-- and apparently simple to hijack. Restaurant cashiers have been mildly annoyed by printouts of hacked receipt printers.

Re: IoT Certifications
Agreed! Security for connected toys has been less than adequate. Let's hope we don't see some sort of connected toy bot attack in the future...

Re: IoT Certifications
I just hope the certifications and standards don't become fragmented and proprietary, so that some devices are certified by some, but all, standards groups.. and then an alphabet soup of certifications makes it confusing to know which devices are more secure than others -- or if there's even a difference between being certified or not. I can just envision an "organic" kind of label.. where devices all claim to be "natural and organic" but the actual certification processes are such a mess that the label doesn't actually mean anything useful -- except for branding purposes.

Provisioning woes
I am hopeful that provisioning methods improve and become integrated.  For the longest time, provisioning one person's iPhone on an enterprise-level required the manual creation of a certificate that took approximately 30 minutes from start-to-finish.  How painful.  

We've finally started to implement some MobileIron products to assist in this tedious process but it is only for mobile devices at this point.  Hopeful for the future for integrating other devices as well.
