Hi, I am a Final Year student at Uni, I am Doing my Dissertation on how to secure IoT devices in Smart Homes, the two objectives are:
• Propose a framework for IoT companies to develop more secured devices than current implementations.
• Propose a framework for securing connected IoT devices for Smart Home owners.
The Internet of Things is a great concept, everyday household objects using the internet to provide great capabilities and communicating with each other. It is clear that Internet of Things will be the future of our lives, within the next decade, a common household will possess several IoT systems in their Smart Homes. However, as this concept is fairly new and only now consumers are buying these products at higher rates, and only now security of these devices in smart homes are starting to develop existing security measures, there are several security threats that arise from this concept. The research shows that many smart homes have been breached, as well as popular websites being DDOS attacked through IoT devices, this attack has awakened the web as it was the world’s largest 1 Tbps DDOS which was launched from weak 150,000 devices.
I would very much appreciate it, if smart home owners could complete the following survey for my research: https://goo.gl/forms/ohM3CGHNqEwaVE4C2
