Yesterday 30-Jun-20, The European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) unveiled a new security standard for consumer IoT devices. The standard establishes a security baseline for internet-connected consumer products and provides a basis for future IoT certification schemes.
Developed in collaboration with industry, academics and government, the standard aims to restrict the ability of cyber-criminals to control devices across the globe and launch DDoS attacks, mine cryptocurrency and spy on users in their own homes. This has become a major concern for the cybersecurity industry due to the growing prevalence of smart devices in households, many of which have security weaknesses.
