IoT life-cycle management should be implemented via a hardware root-of-trust to ensure secure updates of firmware and cryptographic keys. A hardware root-of-trust with a cryptographic identifier also allows each IoT device to be uniquely and cryptographically verified to determine if it is authorized to connect to a specific cloud service. Spoofed or unauthorized devices are easily identified by the service and denied access. This secure connectivity paradigm helps mitigate the effectiveness (and damage) of DDoS attacks against the IoT service itself, while ensuring the integrity and protection of collected data.
