Symantec protects IoT devices against zero-day cyberattacks

Announced on Wednesday, Symantec said the firm is investing in the protection of IoT products used within the connected home, and as part of this effort, over one billion IoT devices can be protected if the new Embedded Critical System Protection solution is adopted within the ecosystem. IoT devices are on the rise. Smart security systems, thermostats which can be controlled through your smartphone, lighting systems which can be voice-controlled or manipulated through mobile devices -- the list is endless. While these devices can make home life more convenient, the moment you connect a product to a network, you are also forging a path for potential security risks. Hailey Lynne McKeefry - 4 Ways to Secure the Internet of Things. Internet of Things Security Risks and Challenges. One of IoT StreamConf‘s most popular panels was the Security as a Core Tenet of the IoT Stack expert panel, with thought leaders in Internet of Things security converging on best practices for securing IoT applications at each layer of the Internet of Things technology stack.

Internet of Things Security Risks and Challenges

A tough topic, there are a number of different design patterns, implementations, and operation considerations when it comes to securing IoT communication. Each panelist brought a unique perspective to the topic. Moderated by Paul Roberts, Editor of The Security Ledger, the panel consisted of: Todd Greene, CEO, PubNubRoss Mason, Founder & VP Product Strategy, MuleSoftDaniel Miessler, Research Lead, HP Fortify on DemandJosh Corman, CTO, SonatypeJustine Bone, CISO, Hoyos Labs Internet of Things security is paramount “I ask you, now that my car’s brakes have been disabled by my friends.

As an industry, the IoT has failed to make it clear that if you put software on something attackable and connect it, it’s exposed. Hacker Search Engine Becomes the New Internet of Things Search Engine. At DEFCON 17 in 2009, John Matherly debuted a search engine named Shodan (after the villainous computer in the cult-classic video game, System Shock).

Shodan was received with some alarm in the media, who named it “The world’s scariest search engine.” Google finds web sites; Shodan finds devices Where Google and other search engines index websites by looking at the body of the returned content, Shodan works by indexing HTTP headers and other “banner” information leaked from various devices.

Securing the Internet of Things: This decade’s IT challenge. The Internet of Things (IoT) trend is such a hot topic today… and for good reasons.

Securing the Internet of Things: This decade’s IT challenge

There is no doubt that a world with a fully functional collection of IoT systems will bring tremendous benefits to our work and personal lives. Let’s look at just three examples. Sensors in roads and in cars will tell drivers of dangerous road conditions, keep the car in the center of the road, and warn drivers of slow or stopped vehicles ahead. In healthcare, patients will wear medical devices that remotely communicate data to their physicians. In the hospital, nurses and surgeons will wear smart watches and glasses that give them the latest information from patient monitoring devices and lab results.

While billions of connected “things” will improve the quality of people’s lives, change business processes and models, and reinvent entire industries, these same things provide new potential entrance points for criminal access to personal and corporate networks and data. Internet of Things: How Much are We Exposed to Cyber Threats? Introduction The Internet of Things (IoT) is one of the paradigms that will influence our society most of all in the next few years, and it is already conditioning the IT industry.

Internet of Things: How Much are We Exposed to Cyber Threats?

With the term “Internet of Things” we commonly refer the objects that could be interconnected and uniquely identified. At the moment, Internet of Things devices could be tagged using several technologies such as the RFID, NFC, digital watermarking, QR code and others. Ethical Hacking Training – Resources (InfoSec) “The Internet of Things (IoT) is the interconnection of uniquely identifiable embedded computing devices within the existing Internet infrastructure. In the near future, every individual will be equipped with a series of smart devices that will exchange information with peers.
