10 concerns regarding IoT security should be considered before developing apps.

The boom in the Internet of Things (IoT) has led us to security issues that were not anticipated. With 24 billion devices online in 2020 alone in the public domain, this is not the case from which the experts in the news industry go out.

Web APIs or more specifically REST APIs are the key to connecting these devices to the Internet. IoT devices are operated with handheld devices and modern websites. Therefore, the low-level, developer-friendly REST APIs are the order of the day.
Companies using REST APIs to explore for apps to develop an app that allows them to control or control access to an IoT device can not ignore the following security threats surrounding the development of IoT apps.

There are a number of connected devices that collect personal information: name, DOB, address, credit card information, and so on. Some of the devices transmit this information over the network without any type of encryption, which is easily traceable to an interceptor and read. Cloud computing services used by the number of devices are also vulnerable.
hardware problems
As there is a huge increase in mobility solutions and cloud computing, the number of chipmakers is adding additional security to each new generation of processors. The latest architecture of chips specially prepared for the IoT devices. The multi-faceted design will also require more battery power, which is an absolute challenge for IoT apps.

Encryption of data
The number of devices uses unencrypted network services. Most devices could not encrypt the data, even if these devices are connected to the Internet. They should perform transport encryption in which the information transfer between two devices is encrypted. It will be important to overcome safety concerns.

Web interface
With the constant cross-site scripting, simple standard passwords and weak session management, if you are concerned, user web interface. These are the pluses for hackers to easily identify user accounts and misuse them for their benefit. Vulnerabilities will get such a big hike with it.
Less network awareness
Many organizations are not fully aware of what is in the network and can not judge whether they have over-configured IoT devices. It is quite difficult to maintain a view like a dashboard for each individual device in the network.

Unsafe software

Numbers of people are unable to set passwords that are sufficient in complexity and length. Your devices are therefore assigned simple passwords. It will be a great source for hackers to hack their devices as the passwords are easy to encrypt. Therefore, they must have a stringent password policy that builds the foundation for good safety. Problems with authenticating data under circumstances may not be clear, but may well be the reason for security risk.

Side channel attacks

Such an attack focuses less on the information and provides more insight into how this information is presented. Anyone who can access data such as timing, power, or sound can all be used for this side channel attack.

Rogue IoT devices

The growing number of rogue connected devices is hidden in the enterprise, which wears down the network day by day. Raspberry Pi or Wi Fi Pineapple is the best example of Rogue IoT devices. An attacker can use one of these devices and connect other devices to a rogue device. These other devices are also available from financial institutions and other types of companies.

Protection from society The affiliated companies of the company could use rogue devices to collect personal data when it comes to money transfer. Therefore, consumers must go through each single agreement before signing a device. Take a look at the company's privacy policy.

As an IoT application developer, you should always look for threats. Safety break is almost one or two times more than that and you should be ready for it. You should always be prepared for exit preparation to secure data in the event of attacks or security breaches.
