In this chapter, we discussed the IoT security lifecycle management processes associated with IoT device implementation, integration, operation, and disposal. Each has vital subprocesses that must be created or adopted for use in any IoT deployment and in just about any industry. While much attention is given in the literature to secure device design (or lack thereof), firm attention must also be given to secure integration and operational deployment.
In the next chapter, we will provide a background in applied cryptography as it relates to the IoT. We provide this background because many legacy industries new to security may struggle to correctly adopt and integrate cryptography into their products.
