Posted in Emerging Technologies, Reports and White Papers on December 2nd, 2016 by Charles W. Bailey, Jr.

The Broadband Internet Technical Advisory Group has released the Internet of Things (IoT) Security and Privacy Recommendations.

Here's an excerpt from the announcement:

The emergence of IoT presents opportunities for significant innovation, from smart homes to smart cities. In many cases, straightforward changes to device development, distribution, and maintenance processes can prevent the distribution of IoT devices that suffer from significant security and privacy issues. BITAG believes that following the guidelines outlined in this report may dramatically improve the security and privacy of IoT devices and minimize the costs associated with the collateral damage that would otherwise affect both end users and ISPs.
