Some of the same elements that have given rise to the M2M industry boom have also enabled a variety of new security threats. Technology advancements and increased computing power, plus declining hardware costs and free software tools widely available on the Internet have contributed to an increased number of security risks.
M2M security measures must be considered at the very beginning of development and only an integrated security approach, starting with system design, will be effective to safeguard M2M solutions and ensure their economical success. Careful engineering of end-to-end security architecture is necessary to protect M2M implementations and leverage passive, reactive and active security measures for wireless M2M solutions.
