Intel debuts gateway 'middlemen' for Internet of Things

Mark Hachman | Oct. 9, 2013
Intel on Tuesday launched a family of intelligent gateways for the so-called Internet of Things, providing a series of middlemen, so to speak, between embedded sensors and the data they will store and analyse in the cloud.

Greg Brown, chief technology of Intel's McAfee security division, also claimed that intelligence can be increasingly built in to devices like thermostats, so that they can make smarter decisions about when to turn up the heat. Sharing data with other devices will require a new trust model and a common framework.

"Where we see security for the Internet of Things is that that it is secure, but that it is communicating it is secure," he said. "The new models for the Internet of Things is not only how to secure that device but how we communicate that... and communicate more richly with a variety of solutions."
