However, millions of IoT devices are still shipping with features that make them vulnerable the moment they come online, even in the presence of NAT and firewalls. P2P, or “peer-to-peer”, is a convenience feature designed to make the lives of users easier, but it has the undesirable side effects of making attackers’ jobs easier as well.
