Topic Abstract: IoT has gotten a lot of traction lately and has found it’s applications widely in areas such as Home Automation, Healthcare, Automobiles and Industrial applications. This has opened up a substantial amount of attack surface when seen from an Attacker’s perspective. For instance, Home Automation sector has grown significantly to this point of time, where almost every device / appliance in our homes can now be SMART. When a device gets “Smart”, it connects to a home network and in turn to the Internet; which enables the consumers to interact with such devices from any part of the world. As convenient as this may sound, this makes Every Connected Device in our home a Potential Entry Point. Even compromising a single IoT device could let the attacker into the home network and control other devices connected to the same network.
