Drone ID systems could catalyse IoT security

Industry efforts are underway for the development of a Drone ID system that would help secure drone, while potentially contributing to catalyse the overall Internet of Things (IoT) security. The system uses Secure Socket Layer/Transport Layer Security (SSL/TLS) certificates, to help validate the authenticity of certain information regarding the drone (including its ownership). Developers of the system argue that ‘With respect to IoT devices in general there is a need to know which organization is looking after a device and ensuring that they are following security practices that work.’
