August ISO/IEC 27403 Information technology Security techniques Guidelines for IoT-domotics security and privacy [DRAFT]




Scope of the standard


Content of the standard



The standard is at 2nd Working Draft stage.

Personal notes

“Domotics” is what was originally known as home automation, I think, a.k.a. “smart homes”, where domicile or home means “The private, hence highly customizable area where someone lives,  alone or with guests or cohabitants” that “includes dedicated infrastructure aimed to support those individuals, such as healthcare and wellness systems, building control systems, smart metering and systems for entertainment or gaming.”

Particular challenges in this environment include:

  1. Limited information security awareness and competence by most people.
  2. Ad hoc assemblages of networked IT systems.
  3. IoT devices not always designed for security or privacy (since other requirements including low price and ease of use take precedence).
  4. Lack of systems and processes for managing security and privacy at home.
  5. Informality in general: the home is an unstructured and dynamic environment.
