Xiaomi released Cyber Security Baseline 2.0 for Consumer Device of the Internet of Things, a new report on global IoT standards, and also announced that one of its other IoT products has been BSI IoT Kitemark™ certified, two important steps forward to enhance security policies and practices in the field of Internet of Things.
Xiaomi, the consumer electronics and smart manufacturing company that created the world’s leading consumer AIoT (AI + IoT) platform, has launched a new set of proposed global standards to instill confidence in consumers about the security of their data when using Internet of Things products.
Report “Cyber Security Baseline for Consumer Internet of Things Device Version 2.0”  Want to protect users’ privacy with a comprehensive set of recommendations, from hardware, software, and device connections to data security and privacy, while the Data Security and Privacy Recommendations include the following suggested actions: encryption and compression algorithms; random number generation function; cross-border network requirements; Cloud storage security and cloud data scanning function, etc. This is a guide to the safety requirements that all Xiaomi smart devices must follow.
The new Xiaomi standards will fill a huge gap in the market, the report says, “There are no security guidelines for consumer IoT devices to help companies improve the security and protection capabilities of their IoT devices.” Companies can now use these guidelines to avoid some of the essential security and privacy risks and to rapidly improve the security and privacy capabilities of their products.
The number of IoT devices is expected to exceed 75 billion in 2025, and the article will “inevitably collect, transmit, store and process a large amount of their personal data and sensitive information while facilitating people’s lives.”
In addition to being one of the world’s largest smartphone manufacturers, Xiaomi also has the world’s leading consumer platform AIoT. As of November 2021, Xiaomi’s AIoT platform has connected more than 400 million devices other than smartphones and laptops, and more than 8 million users worldwide have 5 or more Xiaomi IoT devices. Therefore, Xiaomi is responsible for providing the best security protection for its customers and for exploring industry best solutions and common standards for other stakeholders.
The report comes at a time when BSI (British Standards Institution) has confirmed that the Xiaomi Mesh System AX3000 has been certified by BSI Consumer IoT Kitemark™ (IoT Kitemark), a certification of the high degree of interdependence between Xiaomi IoT’s cybersecurity fundamentals and international IoT security standards. Established by the British Standards Institution.
“The security and privacy of users is a top priority for Xiaomi, and this applies to all the markets we operate in. I am happy to see that the Xiaomi Mesh System AX3000 has successfully joined the BSI Kitemark certified devices. Over the years, we have worked hard for the security and privacy of our users. I can Proudly saying that Xiaomi is a leader in IoT security policies and practices, so we will continue to work hard to build a better IoT ecosystem for our users.”
“Connected devices can bring great benefits to society, but it is imperative that we trust their features and security throughout the life of the device,” said David Mudd, Director of Global Certification for Digital and Related Products at BSI. By achieving BSI Kitemark for its products and systems, which are regularly tested and monitored Independently, Xiaomi demonstrates to consumers its commitment to information security. Congratulations to the Xiaomi team on this achievement.”
BSI IoT Kitemark™ is the quality certification for products and services owned and operated by BSI. It conducts technical testing and security audits of IoT systems, giving consumers independent assurance of secure and reliable IoT devices to the highest standards. Obtaining the IoT Kitemark certification means that Xiaomi products comply with several cybersecurity standards, including ETSI / EN303645, issued by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI), and Open Web Application Security Project® (OWASP).
This is the third time that Xiaomi has obtained this international security accreditation, after the Mi 360° home security camera and the Xiaomi Home app, which in July 2021 received the BSI Kitemark cer certification for a secure mobile app.
This is just a small part of the bigger picture of what Xiaomi has achieved in the field of IoT security. In June 2021, Xiaomi published the Xiaomi IoT White Paper on Privacy , which explains the security and privacy policies and practices of Xiaomi IoT products, and builds trust by increasing transparency. In November of the same year, it appeared in the report “Contemporary Use of Vulnerability Detection in the Internet of Things” (4th Report: November 2021) Published by the Internet of Things Security Foundation (IoTSF), Xiaomi is listed as one of 21 IoT device suppliers that have passed the so-called extended limit test. In doing so, it received the highest vulnerability detection policy rating, proving Xiaomi’s leading role in the field of IoT security.
Xiaomi will continue to improve the security of IoT devices in the future, while strengthening security management and technical testing capabilities to fulfill the responsibility of the world’s leading manufacturer and enable a better and smarter life for everyone in the world with innovative and secure technology.
