The Internet of (not so) Smart Things

More and more devices of our daily life are “smart:” ranging from smart light bulbs to smart TVs to smart fridges - everything can, and most likely will be, in the future connected to the Internet. More and more people are already used to remotely controlling their heating at home using their smart phone.

Today is the first day of the Pint of Science event in Sheffield. Pint of Science is an event at which researchers share their work and motivation with the general public. Thus, I will do my best to explain to the general public the the challenges of securing the technology behind the “smart things” and discuss the how your smart thermostat and your neighbor’s TV might be hijacked to take down the Internet.
