IoT Devices: Security and Privacy Labels Research - Lorrie Cranor - PSW #645

published 2 months ago by Security Weekly

At Carnegie Mellon University we are designing a usable security and privacy label for smart devices to help consumers make informed choices about Internet of Things device purchases and encourage manufacturers to disclose their privacy and security practices. The label includes information on privacy and security practices of the smart device, such as the type of data the device collects and whether or not the device gets automatic security updates. Based on research with both consumers and experts, we have designed a two-layer label that includes a simple, understandable primary layer for consumers and a more detailed secondary layer that includes information important to experts.   Visit for all the latest episodes!
