IoT Application security issues

  • Ensuring robust security of the network requires regular testing and upgrading of software embedded in the device. And to provide the required support to the products regularly itself becomes a challenge for vendors as all the devices are not capable of over-the-air firmware upgrade.
  • Resource constraints can be counted as another issue in the case of encryptions. Some products lack computing resources to support encryption. Also due to limited storage of devices, they are often dependent on cloud storage that itself is vulnerable to many security issues.
