Testing and Certification of IoT Devices
Whether refrigerator, smartwatch or industrial plant – in times of the Internet of Things (IoT) and Industry 4.0, more and more devices in the private and corporate environment are digitally networked. They off er new business opportunities, enhanced benefits and simplified and more efficient processes. But as practical and user-friendly as the increasing interconnectedness is, this trend also brings with it enlarged attack surfaces. Especially since IoT devices contain significantly more complex infrastructures than classic IT. IT security aspects should therefore be included early in the planning, design and implementation of IoT projects. To this end, TÜV TRUST IT and the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence GmbH (DFKI) have developed a test catalogue that allows for an independent and objective evaluation and protection of IoT devices.
