Re: Re : FTC Opens Discussions on IoT Security, Privacy
It is astounding how much can be inferred from only a little bit of data. The folks making smart meters, for instance, can infer from the patterns of your energy use how many people are in the household, what your wake/sleep patterns are, and a host of other personal details, just based on how much power you use and when. Put together the data from a number of smart home sensors, and you can build a pretty good picture of a household if you wish.

Re : FTC Opens Discussions on IoT Security, Privacy
@Rich, I totally agree with what you said. The  privacy is the major concern to worry about. Now  a days most of the people  don't  realise how their private messages, information about location etc are being misused.

SunitaT, no I imagine it is not as easy as it sounds. But I think that it is a solvable problem and one worth solving.

Re : FTC Opens Discussions on IoT Security, Privacy
@Rich, It is not easy as it sounds. Finding a common ground between access of patient information and big data analyzing for curing diseases is tough. Moreover if such a model is presented, people may not embrace it well.

Patient records
Agreed, individual patient records need to be carefully protected for privacy. But at the same time, depersonalized information should be made available for big-data analysis that can spot trends and help identify cause-and-effect in both contracting and curing diseases. How to turn individual data into big data while preserving privacy is one of the big questions needing solution.

Re: Good news
The potential for big problems is certainly there, especially in places where the IoT gets implemented rapidly and security doesnt get thought through. I fear that the one comment made in the workshop will prove true - we'll have to suffer some disasters before we understand well enough the problems that we will then need to solve.

Re: Good news
Agree,  though ARM. intel G&D, Gemalto,and other different companies and other Groups like TCG are working on providing the  HW and SW based Environment  for different  uses casess for IOT platforms for either accessing the data or storage aspect. but I think it shall be in the "rights" of Regular bodies or represtative to define the  "rule of access  and uages of Consumer" data"

Re : FTC Opens Discussions on IoT Security, Privacy
Consumer privacy has always been at stake on the face of technological developments. The major question that must be asked over here is that who takes care of the biometric data and what happens to the ever increasing biometric data? Moreover, privacy should find a new definition when dealing with Healthcare systems. Hospitals using the Cloud should ensure patient security and has to ensure that anybody who accesses the hospital's record cannot access patient files without the prior recommendation by any certified health officer or the patient's family itself.

All member of the United States House of Representatives need to be educated for IOT future direction and technology  to determine the right direction for all regulation and specification in the viewpoint of homeland security and people. Lobbyist would be teaching the high tech to them.

Re: Trade organization
IPSO Alliance = 6LoWPAN, and they are Cisco along with some utilities. I'm not sure how strong they are. Geoff Mulligan got taken up to NIST for a special project on cyberphysical systems this year. IoT Forum is interesting, mostly academic membership - good to have researchers, some commercial entities are needed.
