Abstract: The solutions on security functions for typical applications in Smart environments should be implemented by providers who manufacture IoT (Internet of Things) devices, by engineers designing IoT solutions, by researchers evaluating IoT systems and by those seeking to regulate their safe use. This list of good practices is not intended to be exhaustive, rather they represent the types of activities that we believe will lead to improved IoT security. The use of dedicated security software for the IoT ecosystem makes a decisive contribution to restricting access or manipulating connected smart devices, to ensure the transfer, data management and security on IoT devices, receiving information on emerging threats or vulnerabilities, receiving regular security updates for both IoT devices and IoT device management hubs and to effectively improve and increase the benefits of IoT operation. This study presents an example of an engineering perspective on the types of procedures that constitute effective IoT security.

Keywords: Security solutions, Internet of Things, IoT, Smart environments, network security.
