"Reading remote sensors..."

I would much rather the device push out any data that's read than be responsive to any manner of polling, lest a DoS situation be created. And, remote control of a device should only be possible with very, very strong justification--if at all, and then hardened to the nines.

Can we get a security standard that actually enforces such things, please? Or, is this one of those things that government spooks want for assassination opportunities?
