Home routers

Seems for at least one class of devices, the manufacturer should have to warranty security updates - home routers/firewalls. The OnHub devices make a good example of what to do. And yes, companies that don't should be forced out of business. Now, the next thing to do is to force IoT device makers to create systems where the traffic is outgoing only from the device - so for example you don't connect directly to that new security cam, but instead connect to a cloud server which the security cam also connected to, and only after authenticating with the cloud server are you able to connect to your device. Then when bugs show up, it is fixing up a few cloud servers, not every cheap security cam. Device manufacturers should like this also, they can charge ongoing rent for access to the cloud server.
