The IoT industry is still suffering from major security shortcomings, despite an increasing focus on the area. This is due to both a lack of security expertise among developers and a lack of good security solutions for IoT infrastructure. When development starts, it is the functionality that places the greatest emphasis and security is either forgotten or there simply is no time for it. The lack of security is also affected by the resource constraints on many IoT devices. Some IoT devices have
