ANEC, the European consumer voice in standardisation, reports that it helped draft the first globally-applicable technical specification for consumer IoT security, ETSI TS 103 645. The standard was published in February to establish a security baseline for internet-connected consumer products and provide a basis for future IoT certification schemes.
The benefits of IoT can be achieved only if products and services are designed with trust, privacy and security built and so able to reassure consumers that they are safe and secure to use. The standard focuses on the technical and organisational controls that matter most in addressing significant and widespread security-shortcomings, and ANEC trusts it will become the landmark specification for consumers and industry alike.
