Congress is back on IoT security bills: Maybe we won’t get any meaningful data privacy legislation, it appears that the US House and the US Senate have picked up a device security bill again. This particular bill gives the National Institute of Standards and Technology the power to define security for connected devices and direct federal agencies to secure and acquire devices that they have or will buy. It also charges NIST with tracking and disclosing new security vulnerabilities. Broadly, this is flexible and good legislation that gives an agency with plenty of technical expertise a role in ensuring government IoT devices are secure.
