Personally I see Maidsafe as the go to place for manufacturers of “The internet of Things”. Soon your fridge, your television and everything else will be on the internet (that’s if your naive enough to think it is safe). But who I’m? because soon consumer won’t even have a say in it (even now they don’t have a say in it, heck they just think they are advance with all this new (wow my phone can control EVERYTHING AROUND ME)) nonsense. So basically it comes down to those pesky manufacturers, who seems to be fond of dropping products on the market with BIG SECURITY HOLES in them. So imagine a future where some kind of virus, manage to record all the data out of a billion households. Ofcourse it will be on the news (like that is news) and people will be really angry (about what most of them don’t even know) and again some will ask or code something with more security. Sometimes I just think that manufacturers are leaving security holes on purpose. This is the funny part about security holes being discovered, sometimes after the fact a few (yeah maybe a handfull) close up the securityholes, the others just let it get out of hand and do nothing about it. If these two would just go hand in hand and just solve the problem in it’s entirety, maybe we could let the internet look handsome. HeartBleed is a good example, that some people/companies just don’t give a [insert profanity here] about consumers safety.
TIOT meet MAIDSAFE
Because “The internet of Things” will follow the same path that everything that came in contact with computers did. We can be 100% sure that it will get nasty, even so nasty that they will change the word in the dictionary (NASTY = NSA, they leave out the TY, because it means “Thanks You”). The NSA will have ALL DATA and record all new data in realtime, sounds like a fun future. So some people will get angry and demand more security, those who want real safety will have their appliances running on the Maidsafe network. I can even see fridges and other devices with a Maidsafe logo on it, because that stands for SECURITY for your IOT device. Honestly the internet’s security is in sucha bad shape, that HTTPS means nothing now adays. The way things are now, actually on works to Maidsafe’s advantage and a fresh breese through this landscape of disorder would surely do some GOOD.
MAIDSAFE SECURITY AUDIT
We’ve all heard the Maidsafe pitch (I’m still drooling when I listen to it). What I’m trying to ask is, would you be willing to pay for a Maidsafe security audit in the future? [I fully agree with this cute and smart girl, saying that hackers are the Internet’s immune system]. Another way the immune system works, is it memorizes threats and easily prevent them in the future. It’s this kind of attitude that pushes us forward, the great thing about Maidsafe is that it’s set up with security in mind. Allthough I wonder and that’s why I’m ready to pay a price in the future for a audit. Please don’t get me wrong here, I’m not saying that Maidsafe is not safe (I wouldn’t even know, I’m a simple consumer), I’m just saying that we regurlarly need to test our systems, maybe in the future the system could test it self for errors or what have you. Incase you wonder why we would need an audit, manufacturer are also customers/users/implementers of Maidsafe in/on their appliances. Yeah I could go on and on and on, but this would also be another unique selling point of the Maidsafe network.
