Home security and remote monitoring systems are a major application of the Internet of Things (IoT). Most include sensors, motion detectors, video cameras, and recordersâ€”all connected via the cloud to a mobile device or the web. But are theyâ€”and IoT applications in generalâ€”secure from hackers?
This research study uses HP Fortify on Demand to test 10 popular home security systems. The results will make you feel anything but secure. Read the research to learn:
â€¢ Why 10 out of 10 systems studied were found to be susceptible to account harvesting
â€¢ Whether encryption implementations were found to offer enhanced security
â€¢ The researchers’ recommendations for consumers and enterprises on selecting and using IoT applications.
