The Biden administration has announced a program to identify smart devices that are more resilient against cyberattacks, to help the public decide which commercial devices are safest to use.
The White House said the Federal Communications Commission (FCC)-administered program will assign the most protected devices a "U.S. Cyber Trust Mark."
Analysts will use quality requirements created by the National Institute of Standards and Technology to rate the devices' safety levels.
The requirements call for unique and strong passwords, data safeguards, software improvements, and built-in tools for detecting cyberattack attempts.
The FCC's Jessica Rosenworcel said the program would encompass a broad spectrum of Internet of Things devices that administration officials warn have the potential to elevate cybersecurity threats.
