Secure IoT Requires Ecosystem Building, Report Says

Huawei announced the Internet of Things (IoT) Security White Paper 2018 in the fourth IoT Solutions World Congress.

This white paper analyzes current IoT security technologies and potential security threats. It also describes the 3T+1M IoT security architecture proposed by Huawei in 2017 that demonstrates an IoT security technology evolution, research updates, and best practices.

It discusses how to build IoT security ecosystems by working with governments, industry, standardization/certification organizations, and industry alliances.

Huawei works with stakeholders to explore and address the security risks and privacy protection requirements brought about by new technologies and encourage the rapid and sustainable development of the IoT industry.

IoT development and innovation have transformed traditional industries and daily life. As hundreds of millions of IoT devices will be used for innovative and interconnected services, attack behaviors are on the rise.

The IoT network suffers from high levels of a security risk due to poor security awareness in IoT enterprises and insufficient security investment.

Compared with traditional IT networks, the IoT network poses higher security requirements for devices, networks, platforms/clouds, apps, and privacy compliance. In “3T+1M IoT security architecture”, 3T refers to IoT device defence, network security assurance, and cloud protection technologies, and 1M refers to security operation and management.

This architecture focuses on the security of IoT scenarios (such as the IoV, LPWA, and industrial IoT) to ensure compliance with national and regional laws and regulations and industry standards, and build an end-to-end IoT security system.

“Huawei consistently attaches great importance to IoT security, and is constantly advancing IoT development. Huawei improves 3T+1M security architecture and innovates technology with its differentiating industry security analysis. 3T+1M security architecture focuses on synergy of device, network, cloud, and platform security features to address the security threats at sensor, network, and application layers of the IoT. Huawei leverages its extensive experience in telecom network security to provide IoT security situational awareness and analytics of platforms and clouds,”
Jiang Wangcheng, president of Huawei IoT solution, said.

“Working together with ecosystem partners, Huawei is relentless in its pursuit of addressing IoT security threats and challenges. Huawei hopes that this white paper encourages IoT industry discussion and enables IoT security applications in different industries.”
