What Are the Security Measures Used in IoT?

Below mentioned measures can be considered for security in IoT :

  • It is preferable to use a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) for authentication purposes.
  • Trusted Network Connect (TNC) standards need to be followed to check for malicious software/firmware. These standards keep an eye on devices for malicious activity.
  • Security software and protocols should be applied to isolate infected devices. The infected device should be keptseparately.
  • Multiple layers of security can avoid damage to some extent. Access to the functions or files should be restricted to authorized users.
  • Encrypted data should be on top priority for safety.
  • Legacy systems should be secured using industrial control systems. For better results, IoT devices have to be integrated with legacy machines or appliances that are highly secured against hacking.
