Smart Homes


The media and entertainment industry is as close to home as it gets. The set top boxes, broadband routers, and 5G gateways are at your doorstep. The implications of data privacy and protection for the consumer are paramount here given the nature of home surveillance systems and information gathering that occurs here. For the business, the major risks are loss of revenue from clones, piracy and theft of bandwidth, and flight of intellectual property. In a competitive marketplace with online stores for home-based entertainment platforms, this industry is poised to stream content and containerized applications to edge cloud platforms. This raises the bar for data privacy and protection at higher data rates, and trusted data for artificial intelligence and analytics at the backend.


The strategy will require at least:

  • securing the on-premise equipment
  • securing the digital secrets keys that offer such security countermeasures
  • rotating the digital secrets at scale and as a remote maintenance activity – as a mitigation strategy for tamper- resistance
  • using X.509 digital certificates for key lifecycle management from a secure facility for effective licensing and
  • tamper-resistant content delivery through the supply chain for traceability

Smart Home: 5G Gateway


Home networking and threat detection technologies are not enough to defend the connected home against modern cyber attacks. Many surveillance cameras, entry and safety systems, thermostats, home appliances, multi-function printers, smart lighting, and Internet of Things (IoT) devices are vulnerable due to a lack of strong cryptographic controls, including multi-factor authentication, secure boot, secure update, and secure, encrypted communications.


The global smart city market will reach US$1.565 trillion in 2020, with one-half of smart cities from North America and Europe.

Perimeter-based defenses and threat detection technologies are not enough to defend against modern cyber attacks. Many smart city lighting, smart meters, surveillance systems, fire and safety systems, HVAC, thermostats, building scanners, lighting, elevators, and Internet of Things (IoT) edge devices are vulnerable due to a lack of strong cryptographic controls, including: multi-factor authentication, secure boot, secure update, and secure, encrypted communications.

Smart building technology manufacturers and building operators must ensure compliance with cybersecurity standards such as NIST 800-53, IEC 62443-3-3, and FIPS 140-2. Keeping up with these standards as well as emerging standards from the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) and Industrie 4.0 can be challenging.
