Half Baked IoT Stove Could Be Used As A Remote Controlled Arson Device

Now think about millions of cloud controlled IOT stoves and what would happen if someone hacked the cloud servers and turned all the cookers on at once. This could burn down many houses and even bring the grid down if enough load was turned on at once. The key is not to control IOT devices from the cloud but directly, point to point, from your controller (e.g. smartphone) over the Internet using decent security. MQTT using TLS is quite good for security if set up properly. Then a hacker would have to break into each house individually, not such a tempting proposition. Of course, all the money is going into centralized cloud based solutions as the businesses are “digging for gold” where the gold is your data. Such systems are not resilient. The Internet of Things has to be open, with full interoperability between devices (not “Islands of Things”) and intelligence must be di...
