It is important to design security into your IoT solutions from the start where possible. IoT ecosystems should cater for the following basic security tenets:
Availability—Ensuring connectivity between endpoints and their respective services allows for secure monitoring and management of the devices and enables secure firmware updates.
Identity—Authenticate endpoints, services, firmware updates and the customer or end user operating the endpoint. Use secure elements such as eSIM and TPMs for cryptographic key management. Use unique keys, certificates and roots of trust to strongly identify and authenticate devices.
Privacy—Reduce the potential for harm to individual end users by enabling privacy-preserving techniques such as encryption and unique identities.
Security—Ensure that system integrity can be verified, tracked and monitored.
Businesses depend on an ever-increasing number of smart technologies to harness the potential innovations and benefits of connectivity. With this proliferation of smart devices and endpoints comes an increased risk of exposure to fraud and attack. It is essential that security is adequately addressed as part of any IoT service or solution to ensure compliance, safety and security for consumers and enterprises.
IoT devices can range from lightweight devices with very low power requirements and storage and processing capabilities to more complex endpoints with persistent connectivity and the ability to utilize more comprehensive security capabilities. Such a heterogeneous environment brings with it security challenges, as there is no "one size fits all."
Endpoint security relates to the practice of preventing endpoints or entry points of end-user or enterprise physical devices—such as IoT devices, IoT gateways, desktops, laptops and mobile devices—from being exploited by malicious actors and campaigns. Endpoint security is one aspect that should be considered in the context of the overall enterprise security strategy. The key to managing and reducing cyberthreats related to endpoints is to have strong device-management and threat-defense capabilities in place. Advanced endpoint identity, detection and protection solutions can help you keep your policies aligned while helping prevent malware, ransomware and other dangerous exploits from infiltrating your business.
