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, command line
interfaces (CLI), 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.
