re: Where is HTTPS for IoT? (Update) VIEW POST


What I learned by watching security videos and going to meetups:

  • do not open any port on your IoT devices, not even a web server, is an invitation "hack me", I've seen how they hack real cars by using the wifi, bluetooth or worse had them run a .sh from the USB stick
  • do not allow users to upload anything on your devices, especially firmware, you will lose the control over them

As for the HTTPS overhead maybe the QUIC protocol will improve things.
