The US civil society organisation Public Knowledge published a white paper suggesting a new way to protect customer IoT device security. The paper proposes to create a ‘Security Shield’ label, that will inform consumers whether a product meets the best cybersecurity standards as defined by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The initiative is based on a similar program in the environmental field, ‘Energy Star’ that enables manufacturers to label their products based on their energy efficiency, allowing consumers to make informed decisions.
