Security in the Internet of Things

The Internet of Things is the third wave in the development of the Internet. It is estimated that 28 billion devices will be connected by year 2020.

Poor security and lack of standards are the main inhibitors for the adoption of IoT and M2M.

    Nice set of slides. The enormity of the problem is compounded by the (projected) enormity of the number of connected devices projected. Access authorization, identity management, key management, etc. is a manageable task with a few thousand to a few million devices but when you start to envision the scale needed for a few Billion devices, or more, implementation can be a daunting task. Replication, scalability, redundancy, etc. all become more complex tasks.
