Stay aware of underlying risks, establish IoT security controls to prevent any exploits.

The need to connect, communicate, and remotely manage multiple networked devices through the internet has become a reality today. An increase in interconnected devices is giving hackers numerous opportunities to intercept and manipulate data. IoT security assessments rigorously evaluate IoT ecosystems to ensure the efficacy of security controls, this includes:

  • IoT architecture and design review
  • Security analysis of devices
  • Firmware reverse engineering and binary exploitation
  • Connected interface security analysis
  • IoT platform security analysis
  • IoT mobile and cloud application security analysis

We provide you detailed insights into current implementations and various exploitative options which can be considered by attackers to misuse IoT ecosystems. Our expertise can identify and remediate critical security flaws in the implementation of IoT environments, making it robust and secure.

Aujas IoT security assessment path:

IoT Security Assessment Process

The engagement focus is to mature IoT implementation, processes, controls, and enhance defensive capabilities. IoT security assessments are done in multiple phases by creating scenarios for every interconnected infrastructural asset and through exhaustive checks for every component under test.

  • Implement secure booting
    To encrypt data at rest and in transit between IoT edge devices and back-end systems using standard cryptographic algorithms, ensure data integrity, and prevent data sniffing by malicious entities.

  • Establish strong encryption mechanism
    Build access control mechanisms in operating systems to limit access to device components for authorized personnel.

  • Maintain role-based access
    Enable role-based access for devices by avoiding weak or default credentials.

  • Change default credentials
    Update IoT devices with latest firmware and patches to fix known vulnerabilities.

  • Keep devices up to date
    Authenticate connected devices through device id or a device-specific identifier.

  • Ensure proper firewall/IPS configuration and network security
    Establish device firewall or deep packet inspection capability to control traffic intended for specific network nodes. Monitor inbound ports and ensure they are in a closed state when not in use.

  • Device status monitoring
    Continuously monitor device status (online/offline/all unusual activities) across IoT networks.

  • Secure provisioning of IoT Devices
    Check and certify IoT devices before connecting them to the home or industrial networks.
