Well, something like coding the firmware for whatever apps get
networked so that there is at least some amount of defense against
crackers breaking into them? A lot of stuff out there with
significant computing power concentrates on providing cool new
features, basically on the assumption that nobody is going to be dumb
enough to plug the thing into a network.
OK so forget toasters - look at stuff like printers, HVAC gear, phones
etc that are / will soon be networked.
