Intelligent express cabinet has been very popular in all kinds of communities , It's very convenient for us to 9 On the evening of 9 's office workers . But at the same time of convenience , Because of its intelligent networking features , There are also some potential risks .
In recent days, , A mysterious Russian hacker , Using network attacks to forcibly open a express service company 8000 One of the delivery cabinets 2732 individual . Although the police and community property quickly intervened after the incident , Restrict people's access to lockers that are clearly out of order , But there are still some customers feedback that express delivery has been falsely claimed 、 The loss of .
The biggest problem in the promotion of the Internet of things ： Security
With the Internet and 5G The development of , The concept of the Internet of things is not new . Each of us will have some smart devices around us , When it's big, there are intelligent traffic lights 、 Intelligent access control , To be small, there are smart speakers 、 Smart doorbell 、 Intelligent Watch 、 Sweeping robots, etc , But as we said at the beginning of the article , The Internet of things provides convenience for mankind at the same time , It also hides security risks that are more difficult to detect , This also affects the popularity of intelligent hardware in the society to a certain extent .
And among the more influential industrial Internet of things and commercial Internet of things , Security is more important . Just this year 9 month , University Hospital in Dusseldorf, Germany ( University Hospital of Düsseldorf ) Be attacked by blackmail Software , It led to a breakdown of the surgical system . An emergency patient was forced to move to a further hospital for treatment , Missed the best rescue time and died .
The development of the Internet of things is irreversible , But as technology becomes more and more popular , You have to protect your users with the same technology .
According to a British investigative agency DCMS Data show that , exceed 45% Of respondents said , Security is hindering the popularity of the Internet of things . According to other analyses , If security is better , exceed 70% Our customers will increase the purchase of IOT products .

The problems in this field , It really needs to be solved better by using tools , Instead of simply preaching .
Technology development , Parallel policies
In fact, in the field of industrial Internet of things , There are already some established standards , For example, the most influential ISA/IEC 62443.
In this standard, safety standards are classified , And gives a detailed explanation . From this standard , The ability to resist accidental attacks only belongs to 1 Level 1 security capability , At present, most of the Internet of things hardware or applications need to achieve at least 2 level Safety standards for , Can resist the primary active attack .
From 3 Class start , We need to be able to resist more complex means of hacker attacks , For example, extortion software launched by hacker organizations .
According to the Gartner Forecast in the latest report , To 2023 year , The huge financial impact of cyber physical system attacks will exceed 500 Billion dollars . Even if we don't consider the above-mentioned issues about human life and social values , The impact is huge .
indeed , There is a certain social cost of technological development , But we still hope to reduce the cost as much as possible , It doesn't matter if you walk slowly , More stable is the hard truth of social stability and development .
