Timely rollout of updates after vulnerabilities become known is critical to the security of everyday digitization. ForDaySec addresses the issue of updatability of devices and systems on four different, interconnected levels:
How can vulnerabilities in IoT devices be identified and patched or prevented in the first place?
How can an IoT update policy be organized in companies, public authorities and other institutions and integrated into other processes?
How should users be made aware of updates? How can users be motivated to actively seek updates for their devices?
What are the update liabilities of manufacturers and other members of the software supply chain? Can updates also be installed against a customer’s wishes?
