Rogue devices are unauthorized or unmanaged devices that are connected to a computer network, typically without the knowledge or approval of network administrators.
Rogue devices in the context of IoT refer to unauthorized or unmanaged IoT devices that are connected to a network, typically without the knowledge or approval of network administrators. These devices can include smart home devices, industrial IoT sensors, and other connected devices that are not properly authorized or managed. Rogue devices are a significant threat to IoT security and can introduce vulnerabilities and weaknesses that can be exploited by cyber attackers.To protect against rogue devices, specialized security controls and technologies are necessary, such as network segmentation, access controls, and device discovery and management tools. IoT device manufacturers and vendors must also prioritize security in the development and deployment of their products, including the implementation of secure boot processes, firmware updates, and vulnerability assessments.
