"Threats, Vulnerabilities and Digital Investigations for the Internet of Things"

Connected kettles leak your WiFi password, smart lightbulbs perform DoS attacks on your house and wireless sensors get deployed in operational oil rigs. Even though most news stories about IoT gadget vulnerabilities focus on consumer products, networked embedded devices are being used ever increasingly in critical infrastructures. This seminar talk highlights threats in the Internet of Things, placing emphasis on smart city and digital healthcare applications. We highlight some of the findings of the RERUM EU-funded project on security and reliability for smart city applications and we discuss how some of those can be applied to satisfy the requirements of digital healthcare applications. We motivate further research on forensics in the context of severely constrained devices and we present a mechanism for the automated extraction, analysis and correlation of forensic data for IPv6-based networks of devices of this nature.
