The Internet of Things (IoT) marketplace will benefit greatly from a standard rating system that documents the relative security potential of devices. To achieve this goal, we have identified 20 specific security features that contribute to device security, and have devised a scoring scheme that expresses a device’s relative security posture as a single numeric value.
Device manufacturers seeking to distinguish themselves from their competition on the basis of security features, now have a way to document and communicate the security potential of their devices in a standard and objective fashion.
Consumers will also greatly benefit from the ability to quickly assess the security features of devices and make more informed purchase decisions.
The industry as a whole will benefit from a standardized and open security scoring system that rewards more secure solutions.
In this discussion we will:
- Present and explain the 20 security criteria that are recognized by the rating model
- Explain the formula used to capture the criteria as a single value that can be used to classify the device
- Discuss the value of the rating systems to different audiences of consumers, manufacturers, vendors, and marketing staff
