The Security of the Internet of Things is not about the Things

There is no real way to make a computing device really secure. It’s arguable therefore that a modern approach to security should be all about defence in depth, rather than any one individual security measure that would make a thing magically secure. Security is therefore about avoiding mistakes, rather than making them. About seeing the path ahead.
