Prepared by Bill Curtis from Moor Insights & Strategy and published on June 6, 2023, this report addresses the security and privacy issues of the Matter connectivity standard, which enables interoperability between different Internet of Things (IoT) devices in a smart home. The report discusses the security aspects of Matter product design, manufacturing, and deployment, as well as the practicality of building secure Matter products. A use case with NXP Semiconductors is presented to demonstrate how Matter-enabled technology makes product development fast and efficient. The main takeaway is that smart home device makers should have solid Matter migration plans, and consumers should prioritize Matter devices when shopping for new products.
