Should IoT security be regulated by industry or government?

BRANDON LEWIS | March 1, 2016

After a day full of security presentations, the audience for “The Biggest Challenges Faced by Developers” panel at IoT Evolution Developers Conference wasn’t changing gears. Whether the questions posed to David Kleidermacher of Blackberry; Cisco’s Chuck Byers; Christian Legare, Micrium; and the Trusted Computing Group’s Stefan Thom focused on the hardware level, the cloud, or the communications channels in between, the general consensus was “if you’re not already heavily invested in security you’d better be, if for no other reason than that legal teams are going to require evidence at one point or another.”

Securing industrial networks: it’s a journey

Article | April 14, 2021

Trying to secure the industrial network in one go is like boiling the ocean. Better to view it as a journey. At each step in the journey, you’ll make incremental changes to people, process, and technology. Minimal security. This is the current state for most manufacturers. If you’re here, you’ve segmented the industrial network from the IT network. Traffic can’t cross from the IT network to the industrial network without clearing the DMZ. You can block malware from entering the industrial network. You can block malware from leaving the industrial network to infect the enterprise network. But if the industrial network is exposed to malicious software, you don’t have a way to contain it. That means the malware might affect multiple manufacturing cells or production lines — even multiple plants.

Future ‘smart walls’ key to IoT

Article | April 14, 2021

IoT equipment designers shooting for efficiency should explore the potential for using buildings as antennas, researchers say. Environmental surfaces such as walls can be used to intercept and beam signals, which can increase reliability and data throughput for devices, according to MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL).Researchers at CSAIL have been working on a smart-surface repeating antenna array called RFocus. The antennas, which could be applied in sheets like wallpaper, are designed to be incorporated into office spaces and factories. Radios that broadcast signals could then become smaller and less power intensive.

How Will IoT Revolutionize Pharmaceutical Manufacturing?

Article | April 14, 2021

Pharma is big business, but what it’s not generally recognized is, in large part, a manufacturing business with complex supply chains, finicky chemical processes and products that have to meet stringent quality controls. Few of those outside the industry think about how drugs are made safely, efficiently and at scale with reliable quality and in precisely measured doses. Even more interesting is the simple fact that pharma often produces sophisticated drugs using manufacturing processes that are decades out of date, and which are being phased out in comparable industries, such as chemical manufacturing.
