Let’s stop expecting the government to solve all our problems.

And

Stop playing the partisan game that paints anyone not of your political persuasion as evil.

And yet their Oath of office states:
“I solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States… that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties upon which I am about to enter.”

".. unless government steps in to fix the problem."

I just do not get it. How does that fix the problem?
"The government could impose security regulations on IoT manufacturers, forcing them to make their devices secure even though their customers don't care. They could impose liabilities on manufacturers, allowing people like Brian Krebs to sue them. Any of these would raise the cost of insecurity and give companies incentives to spend money making their devices secure."

The author fails to mention that this would raise the cost of the product and then perhaps there would be no market and no therefore IoT.

And Brian Krebs is allowed to sue anyone he chooses; Right now and there are always liabilities on all manufactures.

Most of the ioT security problems are more on the fault of the end-users. They do not change the default passwords. They one of the top 10 most used passwords.

What this all means is that the IoT will remain insecure unless the end-users demand the Manufactures provide a product that the end-users want. If the end-users demand more security, then the manufactures will provide it.
If the end-user's demanded and are willing to pay for more secure devices, then they can spend more money now or NOT buy them. The manufactures are obedient to the demand of the end-users. And the market works internationally.
