An IoT network points to where devices, vehicles, buildings and other items integrate with software, sensors, electronics and network connectivity, enabling these objects to collect, exchange data and communicate. An IoT penetration test points to the estimation and exploitation of various components present in an IoT device solution, making the device safer and more protected.
The Internet of Things is a network comprising devices, vehicles, buildings or electronic devices. They are all interconnected such that they transfer data between them. The objective of an IoT Pentest is to identify the defects present in the different layers in order to protect the object’s entire environment. The audit targets the hardware (electronics), the software (embedded software, communication protocol), APIs, and web & mobile interfaces.
