But its policies on how to use those devices haven’t nearly kept pace. Not only is this problematic in theory—imagine, for instance, what would happen if thousands of electrical grid IoT sensors were hooked up with weak passwords and no strong encryption—but this has already threatened national security: Back in January, when researchers tracked U.S. military personnel over the Internet via their wearable devices, we saw the real dangers of using IoT devices without robust data privacy protections. This happened again over the summer when researchers traced military and intelligence personnel from around the...(continued)
