A Milwaukee-based couple suffered a horrifying incident when hackers took over their smart home by compromising the connected devices.

What is IoT and its vulnerabilities

IoT or Internet of Things can be best described as the connection of everyday appliances or machines to the Internet. The objective of IoT is to make devices smarter and transfer communication between them for its optimum usability.

The IoT market is prospering with other emerging trends such as smart retail, industrial Internet, connected health, quick supply chain, smart farming, smart energy, and so on. Even Artificial intelligence (AI) is up for enhancing the IoT with the help of the cloud platform.

The microsize sensors unmute the devices and enable them to communicate with each other. It helps to tap onto the consumer’s expectations and reduces the stress from business owners for enhancing their experience. It has succeeded in getting a foothold in the business by sending wireless signals to commit a wide range of operations. IoT not just earned the trust of business owners but also synced well with our domestic resources.

But our reliability on IoT becomes questionable due to the loopholes in the security. It gives an unauthorized entry to hackers, which makes its exploitation possible. IoT’s security and interoperability still remain the key concerns. The developers are in a continuous effort to make them hack-proof and secure.

IoT’s common security vulnerabilities

  • Hardware issues
  • Insufficient authentication
  • Lack of transport encryption
  • Insecure mobile/web interface
  • Less network awareness
  • Privacy concerns
  • Rogue IoT devices
  • Insecure software
  • Lack of secure code practices
  • Default password and user-Ids
  • Side-channel attacks

Developer’s approach against IoT vulnerabilities

Developers can mitigate these issues by adopting the following strategies.

  • Base device platform analysis: Hackers use “privilege escalation” or in layman's language a weak spot in the device or operating system through which they get access to the resource. Developers should verify the base operating system’s security features, properties, and configuration against the base-lined security requirements
  • Analyzing network traffic: The network traffic should be thoroughly analyzed for any interceptable, modifiable or unencrypted data
  • Code reviews: The cost of software development, as well as the risk of a security breach, reduces with early code review. The security threat becomes negligible when discovered during the development cycle
  • Penetration Testing: Testing is an essential aspect of deploying IoT devices in a secure way. A rigorous penetration testing across the signal path to the IoT device for all the platform web interface, mobile interface and cloud interface should be conducted
  • Verify side-channel attack: If side-channel attack defense is implemented, make sure their software or hardware is hack-proof. By testing security loophole an individual can minimize advanced persistent threat
  • Managing updates: Monitoring device updates to current or latest versions could reduce the risk of hacking. The programmers can roll back IoT devices with regular updates notification to protect the device from hackers
  • Validation of functional security requirements: Data integrity, access control, authentication, and wrong password lockouts, they all fall under functional security requirements. These security requirements should be validated and subjected to negative testing.
  • Secure engineering practice: While programming IoT apps, developers should ensure they follow secure engineering practice. The app should support secure authentication ( 2 factor authentication) and secure password recovery.
  • Security PKI methods: PKI (Public Key Infrastructure) provides a framework that allows cryptographic data security technologies such as digital certificates and signatures. Programmers should ensure the IoT device obeys necessary security PKI methods
