THE MITIGATING IoT-BASED DDoS PROJECT INDUSTRY DAY

As the popularity of Internet of Things (IoT) devices grows, so too do concerns over security and privacy. To keep costs down, IoT devices may not be equipped with the software necessary to guard against known threats. Also, because IoT devices are typically designed to perform one function, there may be processing, timing, memory, power, or cost constraints. Combined, these factors make IoT devices potentially vulnerable to malicious actors who can exploit them to launch IoT-based Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) or other network-based attacks.

To reserve a space at Industry Day, please register by April 3. Our international guests are particularly encouraged to register by this date, to give NIST sufficient time to process their paperwork.

Questions? Please send an email.
