Why is IoT Security Important?
An excerpt from the forthcoming book Practical IoT Hacking: The Definitive Guide to Attacking the Internet of Things.
“From the roof of your apartment building, you’re probably surrounded by the Internet of Things (IoT). On the street below, hundreds of “computers on wheels” drive by every hour, each of them made up of sensors, processors and networking equipment. On the skyline, apartment buildings prickle with an array of antennae and dishes connecting the many personal assistants, smart microwaves and learning thermostats to the internet. Above, mobile data centers streak through the sky at hundreds of miles per hour, leaving a data trail thicker than their contrails. Walk into a manufacturing plant, a hospital, or an electronics store and you’ll be similarly overwhelmed by the ubiquity of connected devices.”
