Introduction to Security of IoT (Internet of Things)
What is IoT Security?
IoT security is the area of technology that concerns the protection of devices and networks connected to the Internet of Things (IoT).
IoT is about adding internet connectivity to a system of interconnected computing devices, mechanical and digital machines, objects, animals, and people. Each thing has a unique identifier and can automatically transfer data over a network.
Unfortunately, allowing devices to connect to the Internet exposes several serious vulnerabilities if not adequately protected.
The security of the IoT has come under scrutiny after several high-profile incidents where a specific IoT device was used to attack a significant network.
Therefore, implementing security measures is essential to ensure the security of networks to which IoT devices are connected.
Security of IoT devices is a big concern because the data transmission occurs over the internet. True or False?
