I was a bit surprise after knowing that even trucks are not safe for hackers.

I wouldn't place too much faith (or any trust) in these government reports released by Washington leftist's [U.S. Senator Edward Markey (D-Mass)] on the verge of an FCC take over of the Internet.

There was an article in today's Pittsburgh Post Gazette that said, in effect, that you shouldn't install any IoT thingy if there would be important issues should it prove hackable.
http://www.govtech.com/products/Your-Smart-Home-Devices-Might-be-Smart-but-Are-They-Secure.html

That said, I've no clue whether the ESP8266 WiFi module or the JY-MCU Bluetooth module I plan to support in the X10 controller I'm designing will be secure. I will include a disclaimer to that effect. http://davehouston.org/ultimate-X10.htm

Finally - a practical thing...http://www.nytimes.com/2015/03/10/business/smart-luggage-for-the-connected-age.html?ref=technology
I haven't flown in many years but from the mid-70s thru mid-80s I probably averaged 8-10 flights per week. After many cases of lost luggage (Everytime I went to St. Louis they lost my bags.) I learned to take everything I needed in a carry-on garment bag.

I've been looking at the BT/WiFi battery powered chips that attaches to items you want to keep track of... currently marketed for finding keys, wallets, and cell phones.

The concept usually involves downloading an app that can communicate with the chips and locate your own. One brand is featuring an app that reports the location of every chip it discovers (apparently to the cloud servers). I think the idea involves using the cloud so that a chip can be discovered (eventually) anywhere in the world.

This type of device.... could be a fascinating thief prevention tool if the apps and chip technology was to become standardized.

This was written in June of last year - wish I had come across it sooner. Welcome to the future.

While it does not address security, this WP article does address the central issue of interoperability of multiple sensors/systems.

And here is yet another article bemoaning the lack of interoperability.

Here's a lengthy, in depth article exploring what the federal government is and is not doing regarding IoT.

Here's a link to the most comprehensive article I've yet seen on IoT.

Here's a search engine for IoT devices. You can see which of your devices are being spied upon.
