Internet Of Sieves

Enterprise-wise, Data Loss Prevention (DLP) has often been a means of "keeping honest people from doing dumb things". However, the advent of the Internet of Things and its rapid proliferation is straining the effectiveness of DLP. Sophisticated, embedded devices are permeating enterprise and home networks. Attack surfaces and data exfiltration opportunities are increasing in lockstep. The shortcomings of IoT security have been well covered, but there has been very little discussion on how to instrument and monitor the channels used by IoT devices in an effort to prevent data loss. In this talk, we will point out some of the possibilities for data exfiltration in various IoT products and the current (and possibly future) state of the art in defending against this problem.
