The Internet of Things is an emerging market that is expected to grow to 43 billion devices by 2023. This exponential growth comes with security concerns, as 80% of devices including cloud and mobile applications fail to require complex passwords, and 70% of devices did not encrypt traffic to and from its connected network. Identifying the security risks can be difficult, since every network has a different combination of devices. The use of PotPi’s testing ground for emerging IoT devices provides the necessary foresight to combat the increasing number of security threats in homes and workplaces worldwide. PotPi will provide this service to a growing industry and create targeted objectives to reduce security concerns by allowing the community to discover vulnerabilities and be rewarded for doing so.
