According to experts, this is currently the best method of encrypting IoT devices

After four years of testing, the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has announced its favorite “lightweight cryptography” encryption method, designed to run on low-power IoT devices.

Connected IoT devices such as wearables, smart home gadgets, and even vehicle-to-vehicle technologies are all around us, and the key to their success is their small size. However, this comes with its own challenges, including less powerful chips than we typically see in a smartphone or computer. They are less able to handle traditionally heavier encryption methods, hence the introduction of the new standard.
