What are the security challenges associated with IoT devices and networks?

Security challenges associated with IoT devices and networks are numerous and diverse, given the vast range of devices and applications within the IoT ecosystem. Here are some of the key challenges:

Device Security:

Lack of Standardization: Many IoT devices are produced by different manufacturers with varying levels of security standards, leading to inconsistencies and vulnerabilities.
Weak Authentication and Authorization: Some IoT devices use default or easily guessable passwords, making them susceptible to unauthorized access.
