Abstract

Abstract. Internet of Things describes an Internet consisting not only of computers, but a large variety of smaller and larger devices including sensors, devices in industrial settings and the many smart appliances that surrounds us – from smart watches to washing machines and surveillance cameras. However, this development also brings new and increasing security challenges. Among other factors, this is driven by the facts that even if each of the devices have limited apabilities, the huge numbers together represent significant computational and network resources, that the devices are often poorly protected and not properly updated/patched, and that they to an increasing extend are implemented in critical applications such as in industrial control settings. In this paper we analyze a number of attacks and based on this analysis derive some of the trends and challenges in Internet of Things. We also discuss how these can be handled. The examples show that while there is a trend of more sophisticated attacks, especially for the very targeted attacks, many of the attacks we see today are still simple and reflects the poor security level of the devices. In the future we might see more attacks based on artificial intelligence. It is important that the security challenges are handled, and that time is considered critical for both prevention and detection.
