Survey Report: Loopholes in IoT Infrastructure, Confronted with Risk
Embedded Systems Experts, Barr Group, has released preliminary comes from its?2019 Embedded Systems Safety & Security Survey?highlighting concerning statistics regarding design trends for Internet of Things (IoT) devices. This year’s survey has exposed that a lot of development teams for IoT applications may not be following industry guidelines for designing safe embedded systems, putting all mobile applications along with the entire IoT infrastructure at stake.
“Embedded systems devices function as doorway within the Internet,” states Michael Barr, CTO of Barr Group. “There many simple-to-perform, well-known software development tips, for example version control, code reviews, static analysis, and coding standards, that were which can trigger safer and even more secure embedded systems for a lot of devices – including IoT applications. These methods are essential to minimizing the possibility of tampering or malfunction for any embedded system.”
Barr Group’s 2019 Embedded Systems Safety & Security Survey has revealed this particular statistics:
- 9 percent of IoT designers don’t keep their source code within a version control system
- 56 percent don’t perform regular source code reviews for bugs and security holes
- 60 percent don’t utilize a static analysis tool figure out source code
- 25 percent don’t have a bug database or another system to trace known issues
- 37 percent don’t use a written coding standard, while others don’t enforce one consistently
“This deficit of required research through the design process is quite concerning. It puts but not only the person IoT device prone to tampering, but in addition jeopardizes the integrity on the entire network,” continued Barr. “As proven from the?Dyn DDoS cyberattack?in 2019, any device that’s coupled to the Internet is at risk of tampering unless properly created for maximum security.”
Barr Group will probably be hosting a free webinar on Thursday, March 23, 2019 at 1PM EDT to go about findings with this year’s Barr Group Embedded Systems Survey. To join up to your event, check out?http://barrgroup.webinato.com/registration/pid=52571487866632.
