ioXt Momentum Continues with Washington, D.C. Event


IoXt, the preeminent IoT security alliance of leading consumer product manufacturers, standards groups, compliance labs and government organizations, continues to grow its size and influence. The Alliance enjoyed a larger turnout at its latest meeting, held Thursday, April 11 at Union Station's Presidential Suite in Washington, D.C., which continued the public policy discussion and marked the kickoff of ioXt's compliance effort.

The agenda included a discussion of public policy for IoT security, such as the current state of affairs, near-term policy changes, and how industry and government can work together to set responsible policies. Guest speakers were Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Communications and Information David Redl and Senior Technology Policy Advisor Henry Young, both of the U.S. Department of Commerce, and John Costello, Director of Strategy, Policy and Plans for the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency at the Department of Homeland Security. Alliance members also discussed the progress of ioXt's compliance program and the time table for announcing compliant products at CES (News - Alert) 2020.

IoXt CTO Brad Ree says, "The companies of the ioXt Alliance commit to taking the next step beyond recommendations and best practices. We're developing baseline security certification processes that will be enforced by real-world market requirements to radically change global marketplace demands for IoT security. Policy initiatives throughout the world should align with and promote this game-changing approach." He continued, "The growth of the Alliance has been nothing short of amazing. So many companies have joined the conversation, from device manufacturers to Silicon Valley vendors, continuing the work with test labs and government officials."

With its mission of building testable requirements for consumer electronics and taking industry-recognized security best practices to the IoT market, ioXt knows getting there is a team effort. Says Ree, "Our group is about where the rubber meets the road. We've come up with baseline requirements and identified the market practicalities of creating a real compliance program-one that's scalable and will span everything from smart light bulbs to connected cars-that's led by some of the largest tech companies and ecosystem operators. We couldn't be happier with the progress and want to thank everyone who attended our Washington, D.C. meeting. We'd also like to invite other industry stakeholders to hop on board at our future events as we work to bring certified consumer products to the market early in 2020."
