[TheRegister]Connected kettles boil over, spill Wi-Fi passwords over London - Page 4

post #31 of 76
The only way I can see IoT and IoE working properly, is a smart hub system. Basically one system that you connect other devices you, and those devices run on it's own network and ONLY the smart hub is connected to your WiFi. Since the smart hub is such a big thing, I feel that a company that makes one, would keep it updated with security, even if it cost a monthly or annual fee. All of those smart devices do not store any information and as such cannot be hacked, as they only communicate with the smart hub. The smarthub can be connected directly in to a hardware firewall making it that much harder to hack. Heck, the smart hub could be the router/modem it self.

I got an coffee maker with a timer (good for getting your coffee ready in 4AM before work) but a kettle with WiFi? Are you kidding me?

That's a good idea... but...

Mild conveniences?

An auto transmission is a mild convenience. A remote control is a mild convenience. If one wants an electronic kettle so bad, they already exist, so why one with Wi-Fi? So they can program it without having to get up from bed at night? Might as well wear diapers. There is a point where it isn't about convenience anymore, it's about feeling better about having super cool toys for the sake of having them, or simply being as lazy as possible. I once heard there are chronically dehydrated people in the US and Europe because they're to lazy to drink water. I simply can't respect such people as equals.

Smart becomes single point of failure for your entire home locking you out in the freezing rain.


"Smart hub. Buy two now for only $380 + plus 6 months free security updates"


Banking on an all 'digital' future economy, rather than a medical, mechanical, industrial and agricultural one might be a lazy dream come true for the west but its not all a bed of roses. There has to be a limit with these things knowing the corners cut when it comes to I.T Security in all industries ( including I.T ) this could be problematic going forward if vast amount of I.T security consultants are not resourced, trained and paid handsomely.

Who thinks traditional 'white goods' companies can keep pace with a rapidly changing security environment ? were talking things being connected to the web .. so that's thousands of potential hackers making extremely complex hacks easy with downloadable and installable tools for nubs to mess around with from the comfort of their own continent

This isn't about laziness, this is about being brain dead and needing others to think for you.

So you're saying my 12 year old neighbor could hack into my Steam account through my toaster in the future?

That's a level of "I can't even" that I literally can't even.

Who cares about Steam accounts when that 12 year old can hack the locks on your door and even emptying your house including stripping the wallpaper and the carpets?
