the Internet of Things/Everything (IoT/E) is a bit like herding cats. There are
so many elements that will make up the IoT/E, it may seem an insurmountable
objective to corral them all into a single stable. By some accounts, we’re on
our way toward 200 billion Internet-connected machines by 2020, according to
IDC. Soon we will live in a world where automated machine-to-machine (M2M)
transactions will outnumber traditional human-to-computer transactions by an
order of magnitude.
In previous articles, we have discussed things such as code
vulnerabilities, securing wireless interconnect and securing the objects of the
IoT/E. In this installment, we’ll will take a look at how machine-to-machine
(M2M) objects will integrate into the IoT/E and what unique security issues
they have. Read more.
