As manufacturing companies continue to adopt Industry 4.0, many environments could still be falling short on security with outdated systems, unpatched vulnerabilities, and unsecure files that leave them vulnerable to attacks.
The evolution of smart homes and smart buildings into complex IoT environments reflects the continuing developments in home and industrial automation. Security should not be left behind as increased complexity also means new threats and risks.
Radio frequency (RF) technology is being used in operations to control various industrial machines. However, the lack of implemented security in RF communication protocols could lead to production sabotage, system control, and unauthorized access.
Security plays a crucial role in creating and operating smart factories. By identifying the building blocks of IIoT security, organizations can plan and implement strong security measures for smart factory systems.
We looked into MQTT brokers and CoAP servers around the world to assess IoT protocol security. Learn how to prevent risks and secure machine-to-machine (M2M) communications over MQTT and CoAP in our research.
This research looks at the kinds of IoT projects being driven by global organizations, their key challenges and perceived threats, along with hard data outlining the frequency and type of attacks they’ve already experienced.
The WEP and WPA2 wireless security protocols have both been discovered with vulnerabilities such as KRACK that hackers can exploit to compromise devices, spy on users, and perform other malicious activities. How can users secure their wireless connections?
Routers are the gateways to all internet-connected devices in homes. They could also be potentially welcoming a bevy of home network threats risking users’ information and security. Here we review the most noteworthy home network security events of 2017.
