The Industrial Internet of Things(IoT) is facing one crucial problem is that a persistent issue: security- SaaS-based IoT Central. In an organization, we have to run thousands of devices with the right servers.
The security industry protects devices from harm by enabling safe practices and also includes encryption, trust, secure protocols and mutual authentication.
Mostly, Internet of Things has not been created with similar built-in security architectures.To overcome this, Microsoft is talking about Azure’s IoT tools, which solely focuses on managing and securing devices.This novel approach is to secure the IoT changes and remove the breaks from IoT deployments.
For this, we use shodan, a search engine for IoT security. This helps us understand how the current devices are not secured enough to build our future.
In this context, it is worth mentioning that Botnets like Mirai, and other malware are attacking thousands of IoT devices every minute. Microsoft Azure IoT engine standards reduce the risk of the devices and hardware security modules.
The novel approaches to secure IoT by Microsoft as follows:
Project Sopris is a new way of thinking about IoT security attack. It aims to deliver both the secure communication channel and hardware security, with a focus on micro-controllers.The intention is to mainly focus on windows computing models for IoT devices.
Project Sopris on Microsoft research is a concept of renewable security. If a device is breached, it is automatically refreshed and updated with new trusted connections within the IoT network.
IoT: a Bug Bounty
To contradict the approach of project Sopris, the Microsoft research challenged the security community.The secrets which are hidden in the software of Sopris project, penetrates secure silicon at heart of the device, getting the highest rewards, which were secured cryptographically.
