Trusting IOT Devices?
I attended DEFCON a couple years ago (DEFCON 24) and I remember a talk by Fred Bret-Mounet about how insecure some of the devices are that we trust connecting to our home networks - in his case, his Tygo solar panels. He talked about finding a way to bypass the rudimentary security found on these devices and something a bit more concerning.
TL;DR - Fred found a huge security hole, that if used, would create a backdoor into likely thousands of home networks.
Just think of all the devices that we trust within our networks - just look at the numbers from last year!
And there's going to be even more devices in the future. With that said, be it rushed or badly designed, we will see more and more devices that aren't secured. The only solution that I see is to simply not trust most IOT devices, plain and simple.
