Samsung has announced a new "three-layer security solution" named GAIA for its range of smart TVs, with the aim of securing information stored on the devices
themselves (e.g. account passwords and credit card information) as well as data transmitted "between the TV and [Internet of Things] service servers." This last point is particularly important given
the company's recently-announced plans to turn its smart TVs into hubs for IoT devices around your home. Yesterday, Samsung said its range of premium SUHD TVs will work with any SmartThings
compatible devices from 2016, meaning that in the future, your Samsung TV could control everything from security cameras to lighting and motion sensors. This makes securing the TV itself even more
important — in a network of connected devices, the whole chain is only as secure as the weakest link.
