IoT Security Test

About Cyber Security Tests Services

Security Testing Services is a complex of services including testing information systems in three fundamental principles of information security, i.e. confidentiality, integrity and accessibility, independent from product, prior to any possible cyber-attacks and detection of current security gaps and providing solution offers to remove such gaps.

About IoT Threats?

The internet of things (IoT) is exploding, and enterprise IoT is seeing massive growth as well. Every modern organization is using IoT devices to help run their business.

According to a 2019 Gartner report, enterprise IoT adoption grew 21.5% from 2018 to the end of 2019, totaling an estimated 4.8 billion devices.*

Although IoT opens the door to unprecedented connectivity as well as innovative approaches and services, it also brings with it new cybersecurity risks.

Recent estimates put enterprise IoT devices at roughly 30% of all network-connected endpoints. As more and more IoT devices flood your networks, you start to see why securing all these new devices is so important. 

Also, According to Palo Alto Unit42,

  • 98% of all IoT device traffic is unencrypted, exposing personal and confidential data on the network and allowing attackers the ability to listen to unencrypted network traffic, collect personal or confidential information, then exploit that data for profit on the dark web.
  • 51% of threats for healthcare organizations involve imaging devices, disrupting the quality of care and allowing attackers to exfiltrate patient data stored on these devices.
  • 72% of healthcare VLANs mix IoT and IT assets, allowing malware to spread from users’ computers to vulnerable IoT devices on the same network.

What are IoT Attack Types (Threats)?

  1. Botnets
  2. Denial of service
  3. Man-in-the-Middle
  4. Identity and data theft
  5. Social engineering
  6. Advanced persistent threats
  7. Ransomware
  8. Remote recording

Why Perform IoT Security Tests?

Increased associated threats can cause corporations to experience moral and material losses. For this reason, tests for IoT Systems should be carried out in order to identify risks in advance and take measures.

How Perform IoT Security Tests?

At this stage, all objects related to IoT systems are tested. In this context, a typical IoT penetration test (Attacker Simulated Exploitation) would involve the following components:

  • Attack Surface Mapping
  • Hardware based exploitation
  • Protocol Testing · Firmware Testing
  • Web, Mobile and Cloud Applications Testing
  • Communication Protocol Testing
  • Storage Areas Testing
