Things in the cloud: (in)security profiles of the IoT
We will explore the novel attack vectors and vulnerability surfaces that are opened by the increasing presence of physical devices and their associated services. Privacy, security and anonymity profiles will be explored. Case studies and surveys of existing devices will be used to draw some conclusions and practical action items to face this emerging challenge.
