Along with the proliferation of IoT devices in our homes and lives has come string of laughable breaches to the extent that IoT has become synonymous with botnets. Many, if not most, of these breaches could have been easily prevented by simply applying well established best practices from the the software industry. Yet, device manufactures frequently ignore security concerns.

After exploring the problem space, we will talk about how to solve it. The talk will focus largely on securing consumer-like devices, such as the Raspberry Pi, and include topics like building a good pipeline (CD/CI), automating updates over the air, testing and basic security best practices. After all, IoT security is not rocket science. Best practices for software engineering still applies, despite the reduced resources and physical footprint.
