Many of the security mechanisms in place today to support identity have acted as barriers to uptake of digital services.

The purpose of the IoTAA Internet of Things Security Guideline is to:

  • provide guidance on the practical application of security measures for the IoT industry to protect the security of information and the privacy of users
  • enable IoT consumers to understand the risks to their privacy
  • provide guidance on the practical application of security measures to protect the resilience of IoT communications, in a form which can be utilised by both Carriers and Carriage Service Providers in the telecommunications industry and companies in other industries which may widely use telecommunications services and systems in their deployment or use of IoT devices
  • assist both industry and consumers in their understanding of the application of relevant legislation.
