NIST seeks industry help to secure tiny #IoT medical devices

Cryptography experts specializing in secure communications at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) are looking for ways to protect data created by tiny networked devices that are being used in Internet of Things applications and projects.

These tiny IoT devices, which include sensors, actuators (components of a machine that move or control a mechanism or system) and other micromachines will need a new class of defense mechanisms against cyberattacks.

The devices will work on scant electrical power and use less complex circuitry than chips found in the simplest cell phone, according to the NIST.
