BuildItSecure.ly, an initiative where researchers vet code for small Internet of Things vendors, in the spotlight at DEF CON 22.
LAS VEGAS — DEF CON 22 — There was a time when people did not have to think about an egg tray connected to the Internet. But those days are gone.
Researchers Mark Stanislav and Zach Lanier of Duo Security here today spotlighted the increasingly connected world of devices that comprise the Internet of Things (IoT), and how the IoT continues to be challenged when it comes to security. Their solution was the creation of BuildItSecure.ly, a partnership of vendors and researchers working to make sure devices that make up the IoT are built... well, securely.
