Rapid7 has updated its Metasploit Framework to allow for IoT hardware security testing, in a bid to improve security in the ever-expanding Internet of Things.
Security testers can now directly link hardware to the widely used framework – a vital pre-requisite for the development of safer, more secure IoT systems.
The update removes the need for security professionals to create custom tools for each product they wanted to test with Metasploit, making things quicker and easier all round, according to Rapid7.
