IoT service providers would also be obliged to keep software securely updated under the Code.
The federal government has released a proposed voluntary Code of Practice aimed at improving the security of the IoT landscape for consumers in Australia, including the security of everyday smart devices that connect to the internet.
Dutton said the growing number of interconnected devices - estimated by Gartner to reach 64 billion by 2025 - have the potential to bring many benefits to Australians but numerous devices have poor security features.
The Code of Practice, consisting of 13 principles, was developed drawing on the technical expertise of the Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC), with the Code created to align with guidance provided by the United Kingdom.
The seven page document includes brief recommendations for data storage, password standards and a requirement to establish a "vulnerability disclosure policy", the latter should include a public point of contact for reporting vulnerabilities and that they be acted on in a "timely manner".
"It is essential that these devices have cyber security provisions to defend against potential threats".
"We're releasing the Code of Practice for public consultation because we want to ensure that the expectations of all Australians are met regarding cyber security", Dutton said.
The government said that it will also "work with states and territories to ensure an aligned and harmonious approach".
"Along with our Five Eyes partners we share the expectation that manufacturers should develop connected devices with security built in by design", Dutton said. Moreover, IoT security initiatives will be explored through the 2020 Cyber Security Strategy. "That's why the Morrison Government has developed a voluntary Code of Practice to inform industry about the cyber security features expected of these devices in Australia". "In reality, the vast majority of IoT devices, particularly those aimed at consumer use, will have some vendors and supporting supply chains that simply don't have the resources, skills, or even the will to meet the framework's recommendations". He further went on to urge the people to conduct their own password changes and firmware updates.
The code also states that exposed attack surfaces be minimised and equipment and expert services run on the basic principle of the very least privilege with unused performance disabled, have software confirmed with protected boot mechanisms, make units resilient to outages, check telemetry information for cyber anomalies, have distinct directions for users to facts private info, and make set up and upkeep of products simple.
