Some cybersecurity best practices and guidance for Internet of Things (IoT) device manufacturers are now available from NIST’s Cybersecurity for IoT Program:
- NISTIR 8259A, IoT Device Cybersecurity Capability Core Baseline, identifies a core baseline of IoT device cybersecurity capabilities for manufacturers — i.e. device capabilities generally needed to support common cybersecurity controls.
- NISTIR 8259, Foundational Cybersecurity Activities for IoT Device Manufacturers, provides specific recommended activities to help manufacturers address customer needs for IoT cybersecurity in their product development processes.
