Abstract:The popularity of the Internet of Things (IoT) devices is increasing amongst consumers. Now that more consumers benefit from the IoT devices, the threat of cyber-attacks increases as well. The safety, security and privacy of consumers can be negatively affected if vulnerabilities of the IoT devices are exploited. Therefore the understanding of what is necessary to secure and the implementation of requirements are needed to ensure protection against cyber-attacks on the IoT devices. The recently published Cyber Security for Consumer Internet of Things (CSCIoT) standard, called ETSI EN 303 645, is a global standard that describes requirements on implementing a minimum level of security for the IoT devices. This paper evaluates the sufficiency of cyber security of the consumer IoT standards’ requirements and gradation by comparing it to the international professional IoT standard, called IEC 62443, and other related work, such as the Secure by Design report of the UK Department for Digital, Culture Media & Sport, to stimulate more precision and extension of requirements in the legislation of cyber security for consumer IoT devices to lower the risk of cyber-attacks.
