Is your smart home compromised?
With the rise of smart-home devices, attackers gain new ways to compromise and steal information from everyday individuals.
Many internet-connected devices (such as Google Home or Amazon Alexa) lack a much-needed method for ensuring their security.
The goal was to develop a way in which to detect and prevent eavesdroppers who sit in between network connections, stealing your personal data. A method was developed in which the various devices on a network were used to view a new, unknown device from many different angles. This could then reveal the presence of an attacker by making eavesdropping on so many connections infeasible.
The result was a system that can reliably detect a malicious eavesdropper in a network, and can warn a user that this is occurring. This allows for users of highly-interconnected devices to rest easy, knowing that their personal data is safe.
