IoT Penetration Testing

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.

Secure your IoT devices and networks to safeguard sensitive information!

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.

IOT Security Testing Approach

Each IoT product is different. Hence, you need a custom approach for testing. However, typical IoT testing procedures include the following:

Attack Surface Mapping

Our team conducts a detailed architecture diagram of the IoT infrastructure. It helps detect all the potential entry points an adversary can use to infiltrate.

Firmware reverse engineering and binary exploitation

The utility software is reverse engineered to discover potential sensitive information. Our security analysts perform Application binaries de-compilation, firmware binaries reverse engineering, encryption & obfuscation techniques analysis, etc.

Hardware-based exploitation

The exploitation actions try to take control of the IoT devices and perform a PoC-manipulation of IOT network services. Typical actions include assessing hardware communication and protocols, tampering protection mechanisms, exploitation of wireless protocols, API vulnerability exploitation, etc.

Web, Mobile and Cloud vulnerabilities

In this phase, web application and API (hosted or cloud) vulnerability exploitation (incl. OWASP Top10) takes place, including desktop & mobile application vulnerability exploitation.


Provide a detailed IoT Penetration Testing report. This report will contain all findings and associated remediation actions to eliminate the identified vulnerabilities or patch to appropriate levels.

Radio security analysis

Here, assessment of radio communication protocols, sniffing the radio packets being transmitted and received, modifying and replaying the packets for device takeover attacks, jamming based attacks, accessing the encryption key, radio communication reversing for proprietary protocols, and attacking protocol-specific vulnerabilities are undergone.

PII data security analysis

The analysis ensure that customers data are kept with the highest security standards, ensuring that no PII information goes leaked through any communication channels. Additional assessment of data-at-rest and data-at-transit, providing you with a PII report.



After the security patch, our team re-assess the complete scope to check if all issues got resolved and no new vulnerabilities exist.
