Mosemann, Faith, "Assessing Security Risks with the Internet of Things" (2022). Senior Honors Theses. 1182.
For my honors thesis I have decided to study the security risks associated with the Internet of Things (IoT) and possible ways to secure them. I will focus on how corporate, and individuals use IoT devices and the security risks that come with their implementation. In my research, I found out that IoT gadgets tend to go unnoticed as a checkpoint for vulnerability. For example, often personal IoT devices tend to have the default username and password issued from the factory that a hacker could easily find through Google. IoT devices need security just as much as computers or servers to keep the security, confidentiality, and availability of data in the right hands.
