Cyber Security and the Internet of Things : vulnerabilities and Security requirements

Abstract : The Internet of Things (IoT) enables billions of embedded computing devices to connect to each other. It includes various kinds of devices, e.g., sensors, actuators, RFID tags, or smartphones, which are very different in terms of size, weight, functionality and capabilities. Their success is very noticed and the number of threats and attacks against IoT devices and services are on the increase as well. In IoT, The objects can be discovered, controlled and managed from the Internet. This articulation, which represents a strong point of the IoT, also inherit all the problematic of the security already present in the Internet. The latter rests even with renewed acuteness in this new environment, because of its characteristics special. It is important to analyze how conventional security requirements (CIA, AAA, etc.) as well as those related to respect for privacy can be broken down in this new environment. This paper is an attempt to classify different vulnerabilities, besides analyze and characterize security requirements.
