Summary literature review on IoT security

Summary literature review of industry recommendations and international developments on IoT security.



The Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS) commissioned the PETRAS IoT Research Hub, a consortium of nine leading UK universities that work together to explore critical issues in privacy, ethics, trust, reliability, acceptability, and security of the IoT to conduct two separate literature reviews. The first review, on industry recommendations for government to improve IoT security and the second, on the current international developments around IoT security. There were two aims to these reviews:

  • identify the key themes emerging from the literature and
  • identify international consensus around core Security by Design principles for the IoT.
