Incentivising software updates

Daniel Thomas, Alastair Beresford

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Internet of Things devices will need software updates to fix the security vulnerabilities that are found after they are sold. Even when using development practices that make producing updates easy, there is still a cost to doing so. Hence, incentives to provide updates are required. This incentive can only be provided by monitoring the relative performance of different companies at supplying software updates to their customers.
