Internet of Things (IoT) is about “things” with some form of data connection and remote-control layer on top, all together enabling their synchronization, application execution and orchestration, and basic status analytics. Well, this is quite inexact; in fact, the above definition would apply perfectly to certain industrial environments already back in the 90s. IoT is… Read more IoT: putting the cart before the horse

Digital Security, part XXI : the mouse gets bigger than the cat
