Securing IoT networks

In this course, you will explore the complexities of protecting IoT networks.

Course description

IoT makes use of a wide variety of different networking technologies. Some types of networks have been extended to provide support for low-power IoT devices, while others have been created or adapted specifically to support IoT edge networks. New types of devices, such as IoT gateways, have been added to provide support for the special needs of IoT networking. All of these technologies present an attack surface that the IoT Security Practitioner must consider when protecting IoT systems.
