The Industrial Internet Consortium, a group that includes some of the biggest players in the internet of things, took action on Monday to clear the air. It rolled out the IISF (Industrial Internet Security Framework), a set of best practices to help developers and users assess risks and defend against them.
Like other IIC projects, the security framework is also an attempt to build a consensus among companies building and using IoT. In this case, the group has laid out a systematic way to implement security in IoT and a common language for talking about it.
The framework document, available free of charge, goes into technical detail about recommended implementations, though it stops short of recommending specific products. The long-term goal is to make sure security is an integral part of every IoT system and implementation.
