A subsidiary of Verizon, ICSA Laboratories said today it has added Internet of Things certification to its cyber security program.

But whether it's got any chance of success is anybody's guess for now. While the world is trying to catch up with the concept that a security camera might need to be configured with something other than admin/admin as its password, new products arriving in the Internet of Things segment include connected toothbrushes, blankets and other unusual things.

Consider this-- at the Auscert 2016 Security Conference today, audiences were told most of the consumer-grade routers tested had USB ports that gave the world open FTP access to the data on drives connected to them.

Some kind of improvement is therefore welcome... This has to be the understatement of the year!

ICSA says its IoT security testing targets various organizations that will brand and resell devices and sensors.

ICSA Labs' testing covers alert/logging, authentication, communications, cryptographics, physical security, and platform security.

ICSA's certification will be competing with the April 2017 launch of a similar program by Underwriters' Laboratories, its Cybersecurity Assurance Program. This will be interesting to see.
