The Internet of Things (IoT) is a global ecosystem of information and communication technologies aimed at connecting any type of object (thing), at any time, and in any place, to each other and to the Internet. One of the major problems associated with the IoT is the heterogeneous nature of such deployments; this heterogeneity poses many challenges, particularly, in the areas of security and privacy. Specifically, security testing and analysis of IoT devices is considered a very complex task, as different security testing methodologies, including software and hardware security testing approaches, are needed. In this paper, we propose an innovative security testbed framework targeted at IoT devices. The security testbed is aimed at testing all types of IoT devices, with different software/hardware configurations, by performing standard and advanced security testing. Advanced analysis processes based on machine …
