Most Iot are trivial in nature. It should not need much security. It is more fuss for little things?

@Nimantha.d

I agree that , it is good to have ethical hackers to find the loopholes into your designs and expose the eaknesses and bugs in the code during beta testing.

But when a system , a software  a product is released for  use,  the unethical hackers will still find  a way that to break into the system and force it to misbehave, for which a srong security layer is required to be built .

And who else but a agency like NASA to build a 100% proof security system ?

@prabhakar: Do you think by getting NASA to do the security development and planning will stop the threats ? I don't think so. We do need threats because by threats only we know that the application has loop holes. If not we will think everything is perfect where as its not

In my opinion, it is high time to bring in somebody like NASA to design  a security system for all things that will be connected to the internet.
