Play by Play: Emerging Threats in IoT

by Lars Klint and Troy Hunt

In this course, you'll learn why devices are being connected, the types of security flaws that are being introduced into them, and - most importantly - how we can better protect them from future malicious attacks.

What you'll learn

Play by Play is a series in which top technologists work through a problem in realtime, unrehearsed and unscripted. In this course, Play by Play: Emerging Threats in IoT, Troy Hunt and Lars Klint define the scope for IoT devices and look at some of the many examples of both humorous and practical implementations. Discover how these devices can influence your everyday and why you, as a developer and general IT professional, should be aware of the capabilities and integration points. By the end of this Play by Play, you'll have learned about multiple different approaches to layer security appropriately, industry patterns and best practices, how to secure your IoT device, and how to fix security vulnerabilities.
