There are so many projects, I would like to do and there is little time to make them all…
One of these projects is the eggbot, designed by Evil Mad Scientist.
I found a DIY version on thingiverse and built it with my daughter: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1683764
My daughter screwed all the parts together, organized the wires and made some nice drawings (better, than I could do).
Did I get it right?
Sometimes you rub your eyes and think, did I really get it?
This happened to me when I looked at mozilla iot aka webthings.
What is mozilla webthings really? You get software, where you can integrate different IOT systems (e.g. zwave, mysensors…) and have a UI where you can define rules.
I digged down to the api and didn’t find anything about security….
There are example sketches for esp8266 or esp32 to implement webthings that don’t need a gateway to webthings. When looking at the source code, you rub your eyes and ask:
Where is the enxryption of the communication channel (e.g. https)?
Where is the authentication (e.g. basic auth, or at least key hashed requests)?
Maybe I am blind (or I am getting to old…) … investigate yourself… 🙂
Comments are welcome…
