Abstract Many security perils accompany the development of IoT devices and networks. Practical and objective guidance on addressing these new security conundrums are hard to come by. This presentation describes the collaborative efforts of industry leaders to reign in this multi-faceted challenge to provide security guidelines to IoT device developers. Topics discussed include 1) IoT security basics and the different levels of security complexity or functionality; 2) security functions that are typically not well-implemented in IoT; 3) security costs in terms of performance and energy; 4) security costs relative to the risk assessment; 4) what standards are in place and how to sort them out; and 5) performance, energy, and memory costs associated with implementing the proper security features.
