Internet of Things (IoT)

As the Internet of Things (IoT) grows and affects more devices, securing the IoT is challenging but essential. To accelerate strong security for IoT, the IoT Sub Group provides guidance on how Trusted Computing can be used for securing IoT. Further, the IoT Sub Group works to improve TCG standards so that they are better adapted to the needs of IoT systems.

IoT systems are composed not only of devices (“Things”) but also of networks, supporting services, and storage. Thus, most TCG technologies have some place in the Internet of Things. Yet the IoT provides special challenges. Some IoT applications require especially low power or low cost devices. Many require devices that can be remotely and automatically managed and secured for many years or even decades. Trusted Computing provides essential tools for remote device management (e.g., secure key storage and remote attestation) but other areas are more challenging (e.g., low power).
