Opinions vary widely on IoT security concern

Will the IoT (Internet of Things) become a hacker's paradise? Or is concern over security for the embedded systems that define the IoT overblown? Opinions about IoT security are as varied as the systems that will make the IoT, according to a study released last week at DESIGN West by UBM Tech (EDN's parent company) and VDC Research, an M2M market intelligence firm. Study participants represented a broad base of industry segments from industrial automation to general-purpose systems. A full 50% indicated they're currently using IoT/M2M in current projects - and 69% said they expect to be using IoT/M2M in three years. From a system design point of view, one of the most interesting results of the study was the participants' take on their perception concerning the vulnerability of IoT devices to security attacks (Figure 1). The respondents seemed to fall into three groups - no...
