Internet of Things Security Essentials (IOTSE)

Experts have warned of the potential risk of large numbers of unsecured devices connecting to the Internet since the Internet of Things (IoT) concept was first proposed in the late 1990s.

Networking appliances and other objects is relatively new, security has not always been considered in product design. IoT products are often sold with old and unpatched embedded operating systems and software.
