Congress is taking stalk of IoT Security

by | Mar 26, 2019 | IoT News

In the previous week, two Capitol House members and four esteemed senators came forward with a bill which solely focuses on the security along with the cyber protection of the connected devices which the US government utilizes every day. Given that according to the statistics this is the fourth time that the bill surfaced and it is being called as the IoT Cybersecurity Improvement Act of 2019. The US Congress is well aware that the IoT devices are not secured.

Nevertheless, this bill is entirely different than its predecessors. By the looks of it, the bill has taken a minimal amount of approach to the legislation. The bill is comprised of nine pages, and the bill seeks the Congress of US Hill to come forward with National Institute of Standards and Technology and asks them to make a list of the excellent and efficient security pursuits. The statistics will be then passed on to the Management OMB that will tell provide the rules that the agencies are going to have to follow.

The first attempt of the bill surfaced in the year 2017. And during this time the specifics were taken into consideration. The bills back in the year 2017 came up with an extremely limited amount of perspective. By the looks of it, the 2017 version of the bill was seen to be tramping all thought the definitions related to the hardware as well as the software of the IoT. The bill also read about the secured passwords as well as many other significant and distinguished elements. But what turned off the Capitol was the bill tried to detail how the agencies backup by the US government are going to have to decide if they want to get their hands on a secured IoT device or not.
