The UK government aims to shift the burden of securing IoT devices away from consumers and put the onus of securing them squarely on the manufacturers. The Government is working with global partners and through worldwide organisations to collectively take action to secure consumer IoT products and associated services at every stage of their lifecycle.
Margot James, the minister for digital and the creative industries, said internet-connected devices hold huge potential, but must be more rigorously secured.
Manufacturers of "smart" devices will be expected to build-in tough new security measures that last the lifetime of the product. "This will help ensure that we have the right rules and frameworks in place to protect individuals".
The UK government has today announced measures to make internet-connected, IoT, devices safer to use following a rise in cyber security breaches.
NCSC technical director Dr Ian Levy said that he hoped that the main legacy of the review would be a government "kitemark" that clearly explains the security promises and effective lifespan of products.
Several reports have been critical of IoT security, suggesting that manufacturers are ignoring basic safety measures to rush devices to market before their competitors, while another has found privacy and security flaws in many popular smart home devices.
The Security by Design review outlines practical steps for manufacturers, service providers and developers. The Government will work closely with retailers and consumer organisations to provide advice and support.
"Shoppers should be given high quality information to make choices at the counter", he said.
In some cases, especially with connected security systems, manufacturers' desire to make products that will connect to the internet quickly and easily has actively undermined consumers' home IT security.
The government's Secure by Design review is meant to move the burden of securing smart gadgets away from consumers by ensuring it's built in from the start. "If strong security standards are not already in place when these products hit the shelves, then they should not be sold". Industry has been keen to engage in the review and demonstrate what is best practice.
Moving forward, Julian David, CEO of TechUK said that this project represents the start of a security revolution when it comes to IoT devices.
From now on, technology companies producing connected devices will have to adhere to a new Code Of Practice.
