A recent study found that 80 percent of IoT apps are not being tested for security flaws. In another study, the Barr Group found that 56% of embedded device developers don’t review source code for security vulnerabilities and 37% don’t have a written coding standard. These are not encouraging statistics, and it’s clear that IoT device manufacturers need to take quality, safety, and security more seriously.
In order to achieve the required performance, quality of service, and security that IoT systems require, service-based testing is essential. Realizing that IoT is really about the services results in better, differentiated embedded devices in the new connected world they operate in.
This paper discusses why and how test automation is the proven approach to reduce costs and risk in IoT development. It also describes the advantages of using virtual labs that combine service virtualization, service-based testing, virtual lab management, and runtime monitoring to improve quality and security for IoT devices.
