From the NTIA/U.S. Dept. of Commerce:
The Department of Commerce today issued a green paper outlining guiding principles and an approach to support the advancement of the Internet of Things (IoT). IoT is a transformational evolution in global technology with the potential to benefit public safety, health care, governance, the environment and improve the daily lives of workers and consumers.
The report, developed by the Department’s Internet Policy Task Force and Digital Economy Leadership Team, finds that the increased scale, scope and stakes of the Internet of Things will lead to opportunities and challenges that are qualitatively different than prior technological advances. The report suggests that the Department’s policies and practices that evolved over recent decades to support emerging technologies — like the Internet — can form a strong foundation for fostering the growth and advancement of advanced IoT applications.
