What is the ioXt Alliance?
The ioXt Alliance is the Global Standard for IoT Security. Founded by leading technology and product manufacturing firms, including Google, Amazon, T-Mobile, Comcast and more, the ioXt Alliance is the only industry-led, global IoT product security and certification program in the world. Products with the ioXt SmartCert give consumers and retailers greater confidence in a highly connected world.
Why did Bishop Fox become a certified lab?
As the leader in offensive security, Bishop Fox has vast experience in IoT application and device testing. As an ioXt Certified Lab, clients have even greater peace of mind knowing that they are working with an industry leader who adheres to the rigor and gold standard of IoT testing.
Why would an organization choose a Certified Lab over self-certification
Certified Labs are well versed in conducting thorough examinations based on years of experience and domain expertise. This expertise leads to a higher probability of achieving certification.
Does Bishop Fox produce the same reporting for ioXt testing as their own product security review?
No. The reporting is based on the results of the ioXt profile test cases. Customers will be notified via the ioXt member portal of pass or fail for each test case.
Why should a company get ioXt Certified?
ioXt certification instills confidence in buyers, end users, and partners and shows your commitment to security. Certification also mitigates liability by showing adherence to industry standards, and “shares the load” by keeping the manufacturers of certified apps and devices informed of regulatory requirements and emerging threats.
What does it mean to be an ioXt Certified Lab?
The mission of the ioXt Alliance is to build manufacturer, developer, and consumer confidence in the security of IoT products. Authorized Labs are invaluable for building this confidence. They are the exclusive test providers for the ioXt Alliance and contribute input on ioXt standards.
Does Bishop Fox follow the same methodology for ioXt testing as its own product security review?
No, it follows the approved ioXt profiles. These profiles outline a series of test cases that follow the eight ioXt principles to provide guidelines for quantifying the appropriate level of security needed for a specific product. See more details here.
What specific types of vulnerabilities and weaknesses are being assessed?
The ioXt certification process covers a foundational level of security checks. Requirement details can be found here.
