Trust:

Every connectable must be certified as meeting minimum security standards

What

An agency should be established to certify minimum security standards for all hardware built to connect to the internet. Absent such certification the device should not be able to connect at all or can connect with only limited functionality.

Why

Too many bots are hijacking too many devices. This happens because the manufacturers did not take the time to put in place measures that would stop it happening or at any rate reduce the likelihood.This compromises the security of the internet for all of us.
