In order to be adopted, the components of the Internet of Things must be
manageable and managed, according to this Gartner report.
Specially in light of the revelations of vulnerabilities
in commercial networking equipment, such as the recent CERT advisory
regarding Netgear routers, CIOs are going to be hesitant of adding to
the exposure to hackers with this new class of networked gadgets.
Whether the sensors themselves have management interfaces, or the network
infrastructure (edge gateways, wireless access points, ...), the IoT
environment consists not just of the data plane, but must consider the
MIMIC IoT Simulator
provides a comprehensive, integrated framework for simulating
large IoT environments by providing common network management APIs to simulated
devices, such as SNMP, CLIs, Web services, NetFlow, etc. By combining the
required interfaces into your simulation you can exercise your management
plane for intrusion detection, fault and performance monitoring while
generating desired payloads to your IoT platform for large data analytics
and anomaly detection.
