IoT News – How Zero-Trust Should be Expanded to Include your Embedded Devices/IoT – IoT Business News

Earlier this year, Ubiquiti, a Silicon Valley-based IoT device maker, disclosed that it had been hacked. Customer account credentials were exposed, which allowed hackers to gain full access to all application logs, databases, user database credentials, and information required to forge single sign-on (SSO) cookies. This level of access would allow the attackers to remotely authenticate to countless Ubiquiti cloud-based devices, putting customers’ devices, such as routers, network video recorders, and security cameras, deployed in corporations and homes around the world at risk.

At Sensative we fully agree that ZeroTrust is the only way forward for IoT. But, this is way more difficult than for “normal IT”. IoT is not one network technology, it is often not even IP-based. So, the common solutions for ZeroTrust IT are not applicable to IoT mixed environments.

We are not only talking about it. We have solutions for ZeroTrust in IoT.

Our Yggio platform for any IoT technology is designed for ZeroTrust. But, many technologies are not designed for security; it is often something that is just added as a (shaky) feature on top. This is especially true if you consider a mixed environment with handover between different technologies and protocols.

Data and actions must be protected end-to-end, from device to user, disregarding communication technologies, standards, and protocols. And, it must work on very small and highly constrained devices. This is why Sensative is one of the participants in the EU financed Critisec project, among other initiatives.

It is not enough if we support ZeroTrust in our products. We understand that our customers will have a mix of suppliers, so we must enable them to choose freely but still secure their operations.

The potential for MQTT in realizing the smart city vision – Secure Insights

MQTT is likely to play a great role in the realization of smart city goals. Learn about the potential benefits of integrating MQTT into video surveillance

In the IoT business, MQTT is a standard protocol, and Sensative’s integration platform speaks to it natively. With the MQTT ACAP software in the camera, we can extract an event/alarm – meaning utilizing the camera purely as an IoT sensor – without us ever accessing the video stream, which could be highly sensitive.

For example, we now use Axis cameras for people counting in office environments for facility management and COVID-19 related monitoring – everything is integrated in real-time into the Building Management Systems.

Using MQTT simplifies the complexity of configuring IP-networks for two-way communication and lowers the load on servers by reducing data overhead.

OSCORE for end-to-end IoT security in resource-constrained devices

The new lightweight security protocol to secure CoAP messages could well become an industry standard. We implemented it in a smart city project.

New security technologies tested in a Smart City project, where, among others, U-blox and Sensative co-operates. In this blog post U-blox describes the OSCORE protocol in more detail.

In the system drawing below, there is a cloud service mentioned. That is where the U-blox part of the system connects to our platform Yggio, providing full end-to-end encryption from device to cloud service.

IP cameras and IoT sensors combine to make cities smarter – asmag.com

Needless to say, video surveillance plays a critical role in smart city initiatives. Now, with more and more IoT sensors being deployed, they can work with IP cameras to make cities even smarter, safer and livable.

Many reasons why our partnership with Axis Communication is so important for Axis, us at Sensative, and our customers in smart buildings and cities.

Stakeholders need to work together to realize the benefits of smart buildings – asmag.com

Future smart cities and buildings could bring several benefits to life, such as reducing waste, driving power efficiencies and enhancing resources, but it also comes with some challenges, with security issues being the most significant.

IoT interoperability is necessary, both when it comes to legacy technology already in operation in buildings and cities and all the new IoT technologies flooding the market.

The problem with many solutions is that they are complete vertical solutions with everything from sensors to the end-user application. That solves a need in a simple way, but without any thought on the bigger picture of future needs and re-use of infrastructure and data. Complete vendor and data lock-in.

Privacy by design: Cybersecurity and the future of 5G

So far, carriers and governments have focused on efficiency and first-to-market strategies over the pre-emptive security of their services. Looking back to the arrival of the first IoT and cloud technologies, history has repeatedly shown that when we rush to expand our computing power and interconnectivity, we expose ourselves to an entirely new landscape for attackers to leverage and abuse.

5G is a brave new world for businesses, but also for threat actors.

Cybersecurity facts to focus on in 2018 – Cyber Defense Magazine

An estimated 8.4 billion ‘things’ are now connected to the internet worldwide, and while this level of connectivity comes with plenty of benefits, it also brings increased cybersecurity risks.

Listed by security provider AVG as one of the top 10 points of entry for hackers to access your network, the Internet of Things is not just a problem in the sense that devices can be used to form attack networks or for hackers to co-opt devices for their computing power, it’s also possible to access private information or simply cause a nuisance.
