Abstract

The Internet of Things (IoT) continues to grow as uniquely identifiable objects are added to the internet. The addition of these devices, and their remote connectivity, has brought a new level of efficiency into our lives. However, the security of these devices has come into question. While many may be secure, the sheer number creates an environment where even a small percentage of insecure devices may create significant vulnerabilities. This paper evaluates some of the emerging vulnerabilities that exist and puts some figures to the scale of the threat.
