CES IoT security – do you know who your home is talking to?
There isn’t a square meter of the show floor here at CES that doesn’t have some gadget connected to the internet. Whether tiny robots, your next house lighting controller, or new-fangled drink machine, it’s all connected. And while we’ve worked with multiple IoT manufacturers to help secure their devices once we discover vulnerabilities, the sprawl of potential vulnerable devices here is simply overwhelming. For example, multiple vendors offer pieces of (or total) house control via audio. While it’s cool to have the house automatically open the curtains when you walk in and tell it to, there’s a potential downside. If someone could capture your voice, it’s easy to envision replay attacks where your house opens the doors, or those same windows so they can see what’s going on inside. This would be invaluable to would-be burglars before they attempt to break in, making sure nobody is home. This sort of rush to market vibe runs amok here at CES – the idea that your company needs to display the latest thing to capture market share and development capital. Hopefully, security catches up along the way.
