Internet of Things (IoT) devices often lack device cybersecurity capabilities their customers, organizations and individuals, can use to help mitigate their cybersecurity risks. Manufacturers can help their customers by improving how securable the IoT devices they make are, meaning the devices provide functionality that their customers need to secure them within their systems and environments, and manufacturers can also help their customers by providing them with the cybersecurity-related information they need.

This publication describes voluntary, recommended activities related to cybersecurity that manufacturers should consider performing before their IoT devices are sold to customers. These activities can help manufacturers lessen the cybersecurity related efforts needed by IoT device customers, which in turn can reduce the prevalence and severity of IoT device compromises and the attacks performed using compromised IoT devices.
