A few years ago, we took those general concepts of security and privacy, because every year we do an audit of about a thousand websites and organizations – email authentication practices, privacy and security, and we realized that the IoT market was growing, that there were going to be an order of magnitude more devices that were sending and receiving data, and generating data that needed to be secure and private as well, so we created a listing through a working group that eventually involved over a hundred different organizations. That (group) created a list of principles, mainly targeted at manufacturers, so security, privacy and lifecycle properties of IoT products, and what they should consider building into the product from the beginning, sort of the security and privacy by design.

We’ve had that out for a few years now, and it gets updated as necessary, but if you take that list of principles, and then apply it to the other side, the users of these products, it can be used as a filter to decide “what kind of products should I buy? What are the security and privacy characteristics that they should have?”
