IoT Security To Only Get Better With The Latest Initiatives
Security has been one of the biggest concerns when it comes to the IoT world.
On the industrial and enterprise side, the FIDO Alliance launched something called FDO to let corporate clients add IoT devices securely to their networks.
Many companies across the globe have been working on software that can analyze network traffic and detect any threats using AI. The FIDO Device Onboard (FDO) protocol is specifically designed for two things – ensuring that a device comes from a specific manufacturer and bringing it online in an enterprise or factory environment securely and easily. FDO works by putting software on a device when it is manufactured, and that ties it to that manufacturer using a secure key. The manufacturer then ships the device to the customer and the customer takes the secure key associated with the device and registers it to the FDO cloud.
The rest of the authentication then takes place on the cloud. FIDO is backed by multiple large-scale companies such as Intel, Aetna, American Express, Bank of America, Microsoft, RSA, PayPal, and many more. Devices will be certified based on different parameters, such as how long API calls are left open, how the data is being handled, what the password requirements are, and so on. This is being considered a huge step forward in the IoT security world.
