undocumented manufacturing backdoors...
Is there any way to disprove an undocumented manufacturing backdoor? It seems like a lot of countries would like them.. but how does anyone know if they do or don't exist? I'm sure Huawei would like to be able to definitely say they don't support backdoors of any kind....

Re: nobody's home
That's pretty much what my husband said when I brought it up. I immediately thought of privacy and an overreaching government. Pen testing seems ok if it means the country can be more secure.

Re: Automated
While i strongly feel device level security is required, having an additional checkpoint by Government is a definite plus.

Re: Automated
Completely agree with you that it has to be handled at device level. In this smart age that has to be a requirement.

@Taimoor: On the one hand, the civil libertarian in me wouldn't particularly want government doing anything on my network, dangit.

On the other hand, doing this kind of thing recognizes that IoT security is not just an issue for individuals, but it is a national-security and global-stability issue (because non-secure IoT devices can be leveraged for botnets that can then be used to DDoS critical services and communications).

I think credential stuffing is a big risk especially when it comes to IoT devices. It can indeed be a big threat. What the government is doing to detect it is a good approach, however I believe this is something that should automatically be flagged by devices. No device should be allowed to be used if the password is unsecure. The devices have to be intelligent enough to point out to the user about the strength of the password and its age and make sure the users take prompt action to change the passwords.

Re: nobody's home
@Joe: I think it'd only sound like an attack when there's an ulterior motive involved to exploint the information. If the purpose is to simply assess the current security situation and not cause any damage, it'd probably not fall under an attack. But again that's my personal opinion about it.
