Security requirements need to factor in cost of security failure(economic, social, environmental, etc), risk of attack, cost of implementation. Key requirements may include:
Secure boot
Encrypted communication
For devices that are capable, implementation of security software such as anti-malware, intrusion prevention systems, and even local firewalls
Device tampering detection
**Note: Should leverage work from ATIS Cybersecurity initiative which is looking at IoT device security attributes as part of the overall assessment of IoT security threats and recommended mitigations.
