There is also an increased need for key management in IoT devices. Many of these devices operate without human monitoring, allowing hackers nearly unlimited time to locate and exploit vulnerabilities. Thousands of devices, with a constant stream of additional devices being added, are in constant communication with one another.
Securing these devices require a robust key management solution that can scale up quickly and easily as more devices are added. Since many of these devices are small and inexpensively produced, a key management service for IoT requires a small footprint that can be embedded at lower cost.
