IOT SECURITY TESTING
The process of penetration testing IoT (Internet of Things) devices is unique and easy to overlook. Embedded components, non-standard firmware, and unique radio communications all increase the complexity of IoT security. Despite new security challenges, there has been an incremental rise in the adoption of embedded devices. IoT tech can be found in enterprise environments, homes, and everywhere in between. Between quick growth and a rocky understanding of the underlying technologies, many organizations face new security flaws.
Amandata XecureINFRA services provides advanced IoT pentesting to identify these risks and prevent your device from being used against you – or your customers.
HOW IT WORKS
The Internet of Things refers to the global collective of internet-facing embedded devices. These devices contain various sensors, actuators, and electronic components that interface with web-based applications or cloud technology. They can be security cameras, alarm systems, thermostats, door locks, or even vehicles. With the expansion of IoT, we’re seeing a new wave of great accessibility benefits and impending security concerns.
Amandata XecureINFRA leads the industry in full-stack IoT penetration testing services, ranging from smart homes and medical systems to smart security systems. Our services go beyond surface level inspection, reverse-engineering the hardware components for dumping firmware and other critical modules. By revealing security vulnerabilities before attackers can take advantage of them, we can eliminate much of the risk that comes with new, misunderstood technology.
We approach this by studying cryptographic protections and communication methods the device uses to connect to the internet, manipulating the cloud services that host your data, and attacking the user interfaces that talk to your device.
Each assessment begins with the devices that make up your IoT ecosystem. We carefully reverse-engineer and disassemble these devices, mapping out components and uncovering vulnerabilities.With unmatched security hardware expertise and specialized capabilities – such as anti-tamper bypass tools – we provide the deep technical breakdown not found in other services.
The software component of IoT testing is both the device firmware (either provided by the client or extracted in the hardware process) and the associated backend applications or APIs. Reverse-engineering the firmware can reveal sensitive information that can be used in later attacks, such as decrypting traffic using hardcoded encryption keys.
Upon completion of the security test, a detailed report is sent to the client, including the following:
- Executive Summary: Summary of the purpose of this test, as well as as brief explanation of the threats facing the organization from a business perspective.
- Findings: A detailed, technical explanation of the findings of the tests, with steps and proofs of the findings.
- Conclusion & Recommendations: This section provides final recommendations and summary of the issues found in the security test.
