02. July 2016 · Comments Off on The Second Law of IoT: Not All “Things” that Can Be Connected Should Be Connected · Categories: News · Tags: ,

In Part One of this Cybersecurity for IoT Blog Series, I noted that we should assume that everything will someday be connected—even those “things” designed without any networking capability. However, we should also be deliberate when deciding what to attach and what to isolate. When a link is established, we should know not only that a connection has been created, but also why, what risks will result, and how those risks will be managed. If connections must be made with care—or in some cases not at all—then why should we assume “things that can be connected will be connected?” It might initially appear that my proposed first and second laws of IoT contradict one another.  I would argue against this conclusion.

Seeking to secure a dominant position in the burgeoning Internet of Things (IoT) market, Samsung announced Tuesday that it’s teaming up with SK Telecom to deploy a nationwide IoT-dedicated network in South Korea by the middle of this year.The network will use the LoRa wireless networking standard, and Samsung says this will make it the first IoT-dedicated LoRaWAN network ever deployed on a national scale. LoRaWAN IoT networks use an unlicensed, public spectrum called the Industrial Scientific and Medical (ISM) frequency band. To prevent degradation of other industrial communications using the ISM band, the network will support the Listen Before Talk (LBT) function, Samsung noted.
