Hello all, I have zero idea about this stuff as I didn't learn it before, can someone help me? or can someone provide me some site or news for doing this study?
Quick analysis of the existing IoT security landscape and the effectiveness of current solutions. Explore new ways to identify and mitigate IoT security risk for home and business users from the perspective of Application Layer Security.
Huge amounts of electronic devices used by individuals and corporations are wired and interconnected which are collectively called Internet of Things (IoT). The higher interconnectivity leads to better communication amongst devices which in turn brings us convenience but also a new attack vector for hackers. Security concern are an exponential function of the numbers of connected IoT devices. In light of the data sensitivity of what IoT devices have access to, it’s important to understand their security risk and ideally, minimize the risk.
- Problems: Analyze IoT devices which are common for domestic and commercial usages. Study the IoT security vulnerabilities poised by such devices. Who are the likely attackers? What are the common attack methods?
- Analysis of Existing Solutions: How to efficiently and cost-effectively identify and minimize such risks? Is the current protection on the Application Layer adequate? Are the existing software and tools powerful enough to protect the users? What are the costs, benefits or limitations?
- Feasibility Study of New Solutions: Any necessity to make a new device or solution to tackle such risk? If so, what are the technical requirements for such solution? A prototype of the solution
- Recommended Best Practice for home and business users: Recommended best practice of enhancing Application Layer Security for IoT
