California Governor Jerry Brown recently signed the "Security of Connected Devices" bill into law. Among other things, the bill forces any internet facing devices to use reasonable security measures, and explicitly prohibits weak default login credentials like "password" as a password. "admin" was allegedly the username and password for one of Equifax's systems prior to the data breach, and many other commercial systems suffer from same issue. The Information Privacy: Connected Devices bill demands that electronics manufacturers equip their products with "reasonable" security features. This can mean a unique password or a start-up procedure that forces users to generate their own code when using the gadget for the first time. The bill also allows customers who suffer harm when a company ignores the law to sue for damages.
