With how much memory and processing power any modern
internet-connected device has, plus the ever ubiquitous cloud, I don't
understand why IoT, especially non-consumer-grade IoT, should have any
need for public IPv4 addresses.
Even if you have a very legacy app, and IPsec is too complex for your
needs, doing an SSH session with OpenSSH and its port forwarding
feature is just too simple to pass up. http://mdoc.su/o/ssh.1
I mean, come on, if malware vendors have no need for public IP
addresses to take control of your IoT and perform C&C, you're clearly
doing something wrong if your own shit doesn't work without it.
