Techniques are provided for detecting that an Internet of Things (IoT) device does not conform to its Manufacturer Usage Description (MUD) / Manufacturer Behavior Description (MBeD) specification, and applying that information to metering-based monetization schemes. This incentivizes IoT device manufacturers to produce accurate MBeD definitions. This also enables applications or fog deployments to dynamically control the degree of security expected from sensors.
