NIST Guide provides basics to mitigate security of IoT Device

by | Aug 6, 2019 | IoT Applications & Examples

Recently NIST has released the second part of a planned series on the device security concerning IoT device security. Also, this is going to provide different organizations with the fundamental core principles, which is essential to secure IoT devices. Furthermore, the first step begins with the manufacturers of the devices.

Back in June 2019, NIST did unveil a profoundly foundational piece regarding the Internet of Things assets. The study did also outline a wide array of cybersecurity and privacy which Internet of Things poses. The NIST researchers also announced that the laboratory for the physical sciences would continue building on a robust guidance system. By the looks of it, NIST will also build on guidance for helping organizations who are supporting the vulnerabilities of the devices.

The definitive guide from NIST came into being in the previous week. Moreover, the guide puts focus on the devices which are always connected on the network. These devices are also found in many industries as well as in several hospitals. NIST also came up with recommending cybersecurity features for securing the Internet of Things for both organizations and manufacturers around the world.

By the looks of it, the Core Baseline offers some guides along with the recommendations for what Internet of Things can become. The principal author of the study, and NIST’s computer scientist, Mike Fagan, said that the Internet of Things devices should possess robust security measures.

The study is aimed towards a technical audience; however, the researchers in NIST hope that they would help the manufacturers along with the consumers. According to NIST, securing the Internet of Things devices is more like a group effort. It is the manufacturer that has to supply the software updates and the optional security features. The users have to apply security to the Internet of Things devices. Both of the sides play a massive role in making the security in IoT robust.
