The exponential increase of Internet of Things (IoT) devices haveresulted in a range of new and unanticipated vulnerabilitiesassociated with their use. IoT devices from smart homes to smart enterprises can easily be compromised. One of the major problems associated with the IoT is maintaining security; thevulnerable nature of IoT devices poses a challenge to manyaspects of security, including security testing and analysis. It istrivial to perform the security analysis for IoT devices tounderstand the loop holes and very nature of the devices itself.Given these issues, there has been less emphasis on securitytesting and analysis of the IoT. In this paper, we show ourpreliminary efforts in the area of security analysis for IoT devicesand introduce a security IoT testbed for performing securityanalysis. We also discuss the necessary design, requirements and the architecture to support our security analysis conducted via the proposed testbed.
