Avoiding pitfalls of Internet of People
Is there any reason for refrigirator or TV set to send emails?? Just because it can be done does not mean it should be done. I have been appaled for many years at the level of "amateurism", for the lack of better word, that current Internet of people operates. It feels like one temporary solution slapped on the other, without ever taking a pause and redisigning it with security in mind. Domains are not "entrusted", emails can be send in a deceiving way, pretending to be from somewhere or someone else, etc. We should really make sure that Internet of things does not go the same way. Each IP address should be registered and entrusted, "things" should have limited, but strictly defined functionality and strong encription protocols should be used in communicating with them.
