The burgeoning internet of things is a great idea but it won’t really take off without some serious breakthroughs in security, said Dan Kaufman, director of the Information Innovation Office at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), at our Structure conference in San Francisco on Thursday.
Kaufman, who was joined on stage by CloudFlare’s CEO Matthew Prince, pointed out that the PC industry was unusual in that customers pay thousands of dollars for products that are broken from the start — you buy a new machine and the first thing you have to do is patch it — and this model won’t fly when you’re dealing with smart homes and so on.
Attaching a billion devices to the Internet with no UI is going to be a big security risk. We have to find a way to make security a part of the process from the beginning. Or the nightmare of unsecured devices is going to be insane.
