The world of smart devices and connected home appliances is set to expand dramatically over the next few years, with more and more devices expected to be connected to the internet.
As part of a new certification program launched in 2018, the European Union has been introducing certification programs for connected devices that will allow companies to certify that their products comply with strict EU standards.
The new certification, called the EU Smart Environment, will be offered to IoT and smart-home manufacturers.
The EU’s Smart Environment certification program aims to ensure that products can be certified by the European Commission and the European Industry Standards Organisation (EISO) to ensure the products are safe, effective and effective.
The certification will be made available in 2020.
In a statement, the EU’s Directorate General of Electronic Communications said that “these products should be designed with a variety of safety and security features and, when necessary, should be powered off and locked by default, which ensures their security.”
The certification programs will be designed for connected products to comply with European legislation on the regulation of the devices.
The first batch of certification for connected items will be delivered by the end of 2019, the spokesperson added.
The announcement comes amid growing concern over the security of connected devices and the growing use of security products, such as security certificates and smart locks.
Earlier this month, a security expert warned that a malicious hacker could use a malicious security certificate to trick users into connecting their devices to the wrong internet of devices, such that they would then be able to bypass their security settings.
Security experts warned that the malicious security certificates could be used to control the flow of traffic on the internet of items, including smart home devices, or even to install malware on the devices, according to the cybersecurity firm FireEye.
