Device Risks to Network Operators from IoT (2017)

By Brian A. Scriber, CableLabs

The promise of the Internet of Things (IoT) is to develop systems, sensors, and rules to help automate our environments in a way that brings connectivity between people, security and protection to individuals and families, and allows us to bridge gaps in geography. Security in this realm has been widely discussed, often bemoaned and still in need of improvement.

Grouping like concerns around IoT Security results in seven groups of closely related concepts: Identity, Onboarding, Confidentiality, Integrity, Availability, Lifecycle Management, and Future Security. Each of these can be further broken down into subcategories, and each comes with its own particular threats as well as techniques to help secure it.
