Samsung brings Knox security to smart fridges and TVs

Samsung’s Knox security is no longer limited to running on phones and tablets. The tech firm has announced that it’s integrating Knox across its connected devices, including TVs, appliances and even digital signs. As on mobile gear, it combines hardware and firmware updates to catch attempts to compromise a device.

The company hasn’t said exactly how widespread Knox support is at the moment, or when it will reach hardware that doesn’t already have the technology. There’s plenty of incentive to make it as widely available as possible, mind you. Now that many of its devices are connected, it could also have many more security risks on its hands. You don’t someone to compromise your entire home network by hacking your fridge. Although this doesn’t mean your smart home will be impervious to attack, it could eliminate obvious weak points.
