Re: IoT Security
Completely agree! I think itís been a long time coming. Security is at a higher risk now more than ever, in my opinion. There are so many high security risks and itís about time ioT involved security in.

Re: A smart suitcase is an awesome concept
freehe,

Well, I admit that talking to my suitcase, no matter how smart it is, will probably always be a poor substitute for talking to the family.  But I'm not sure that there's anything especially humanizing about lugging a box of clothes with a handle through an air terminal.  I'd worry a lot more about robots/AIs replacing the people at the counter and the flight attendants, where human interaction really is part of the job.  (Don't think it could happen? Have you used an electronic checkout at a supermarket? Remember how you used to have to trade a little small talk with the cashier? Or if you're older, have you ever had the sort of short conversation that used to be routine with anyone at the gas station you use most often?) I can see the concern about losing touch where people used to do the job and we used to interact, but as I recall we never did talk much to the luggage.

Re: Single Digits?
@afwriter, You are so right. I try to educate my social network that is not in IT about these very issues but they don't believe me. If people knew all the risks and how easy it is to access a person's information they would choose more wisely the products and service they purchase.

Re: Single Digits?
@mpouraryan, I totally agree with you. I worked in IT security for 6 years and try to tell my social network about risks but they don't believe me. I am reading a book now called Dragnet Nation that talks about all of the privacy risks that exist today. It is scary sometimes if you stop to think about it.

Re: A smart suitcase is an awesome concept
@JohnBarnes, As usual you summarize topics well. I agree. The underground world always find a way to tap into any new technology that comes on the market. Companies cannot advance fast enough to thwart the hackers.

Re: Single Digits?
@afwriter, Wow being able using IoT to track people and things is amazing. However I will pass on using that technology. This gives "big brother" more opportunity to watch people and provide yet another way for hackers to access things and people. There are also consequences if strong security measures are not implemented.

It is amazing that IoT trackers can track up to 12 city blocks for those who want that feature.

IoT Costs
It is great that the costs of Cat M1 are going down. A price drop from $250 to $40 is huge and purchasing Cat M1 based on price is a no-brainer but companies have to look at all aspects - pros and cons of using it. The fact that network costs are going down is great. That has been a huge expense for companies for years.

Re: A smart suitcase is an awesome concept
@JohnBarnes, That is hilarious. I never thought of having a smart suitcase. Based on your estimations I don't want one. I don't want any inanimate object doing things for me that I can do for myself. It will further cause people to lose their social skills and act like robots. Human need to interact with each other frequently which is why so many people commit suicide or become depressed.

The more smart devices we  have the more people will become secluded from each other and lose their sensitivity, compassion and socialism.

IoT Security
I am glad to hear someone discuss using security with IoT. It is about time that security is being planned as part of IoT deployment. The strategy to traverse the public network is great. The ability to quickly recognize anomalies, generate alerts and shut down communications or services to a specific device is great.

Re: A smart suitcase is an awesome concept
In DIRECTIVE 51 I pointed out that a bumper to bumper high speed truck convoy will be essentially weaponizable the same way an airliner was in 2001.

Somewhere out there someone clever is already dreaming of mixing the lanes on a multilane freeway ... I just hope someone even more clever is dreaming of a way to make that impossible.
