IOT Notes

The dispersed nature of the Internet of Things (IoT) presents a major operational challenge that is uncommon in the traditional Internet or enterprise networks[5]. Devices that are managed together — say a fleet of railcars — are not physically colocated. Instead, they are widely geographically distributed. The operational approaches for management and security used in enterprise networks, where most hosts are densely contained in buildings or campuses, do not translate to the IoT.
