On October 6th 2015, ENISA organised a workshop to validate its study on IoT (internet of things) security for smart home environments in Berlin. The workshop gathered over twenty participants with various backgrounds including product manufacturers, solution vendors, developers, academia and researchers, CERTs, and policy makers.
ENISA presented its project and good security practices to secure IoT in smart home environments. The Agency’s work has been validated based on participants’ input, and will be contributing further in the field by providing guidance.
Participants also presented their work in the IoT security domain. This included:
- EU policy and research aspects (Dr Thibaut Kleiner, European Commission, DG CONNECT)
- firmware security (Dr Andrei Costin, Eurecom / Firmware.RE)
- IoT security and privacy framework (Mr Craig Spiezle, OTAlliance.org)
- CERT for IoT (Mr Cédric Messeguer,Digital Security and Mr.Thomas Gayet, CERT UBIK).
Key conclusions, in consensus, show:
- IoT security is needed during the whole lifecycle of devices and services (starting at the early stages of a project, for their implementation and up to their end of life).
- Collaboration of all stakeholders is required to harmonise the definition of security for IoT
- Awareness raising is important, both for decision-makers and end-users
Workshop presentations are now available on the event page: ENISA Workshop on Cyber security for IoT in Smart Home Environments.
