I was invited to speak at the Eastern European DNS Forum/UADOM on 1 December 2016 in a session on the Internet of Things (IoT). I followed A. Baranov's fine presentation about the promises and benefits of IoT with a presentation on IoT characteristics, challenges and threat landscape. I concluded the presentation asking, "is the past a prelude to the future?", explaining that if we don't learn from our past mistakes and haste to market decisions, the IoT cannot deliver all that we aspire it to be but instead may pose an Internet of Threats.
I want to thank my ICANN colleagues Alain Durand and Richard Lamb for their assistance in preparing this presentation. They provided unique and excellent insights to help me cover many aspects of the IoT problem space I might have otherwise overlooked.
