Connected Device Security

Connected Device Security

Connected Device Security is a relatively new domain, and these devices are exposed to a large attack surface through their Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and proprietary RF connections. Connected devices are also vulnerable to attacks through mobile and web applications, or an interface controlled by a thick or thin client, and are at risk of physical hardware attacks targeting the electronics of the device.

Auditing these products require expert skills in a range of specific fields, such as radio signals, electronics, computer systems, network applications and cryptography.

At SSL247®, we are committed to ensuring that your devices, products, employees, clients, and business as a whole are secure from attacks.

In addition to security audits of your connected devices, we can conduct training and best practice advice on the security assessment of connected devices.


Connected Device Security



Methodology and Strategy

Depending on your devices and their attack surface, our teams will work together with you and your teams to develop an action plan and choose an aspect of your product to focus on (for example, testing the back-end environment that your product communicates with), or focusing on the product itself.

The methodology our teams employ for testing your infrastructure is similar to that of application and mobile tests. The aim is to attack all visible layers of the service.

When the tests focus on the product or device itself, there will be some differences in the methodology. The auditor will proceed as follows:

  • Analysis of communication between the device and the master infrastructure or other devices within a decentralised system (for example plug-ins of a home automation system).

  • Retrieval of information via electronic debugging ports (JTAG, UART, etc.) or extraction of the memory from various software chips.

  • Analysis / Reverse engineering of the embedded firmware from the moment it is recovered (for example, electronically or from the manufacturer's website).
