IOT PENETRATION TESTING

Brisk Infosec IOT Penetration Testing is combination of security test done with the wireless network, data, mobile application and cloud security.

Brisk Infosec’s Internet of Things security testing takes a holistic approach to security testing by reviewing the entire product ecosystem from chip to code. Our security evaluations mitigate cyber risks in connected devices, helping enterprises to build in security from the outset and gain a competitive advantage in market which is experiencing both exponential growth and increased consumer concern about cyber-security.

NEED

IOT security testing becomes critical as Internet of Things becomes a reality today. It is obvious that IOT will have a strong, positive impact on making our lives easier which makes the organizations to pay a lot more attention to security, risk, designing, and the basic architecture of their products In just two to three years. The Internet of Things will be a major avenue for hackers for the simple reason that everything is going to be connected.

Additionally, enterprises throughout the world are also rapidly migrating, developing, or rolling out newer IOT-enabled products into the market which creates security awareness for organization.

METHODOLOGY

Brisk Infosec IOT security testing its classified into the following major phases:

  • IOT Device Application Security Testing
  • IOT Device Firmware Security Assessment
  • Wireless Protocol Security Assessments
  • IOT Cloud Web Security Testing
  • IOT Device Network Services Security Testing

These phases are further classified into following testing categories :

  • IOT Testing for the OWASP IOT Top 10 list
  • IOT Attack Surface Areas identification
  • IOT Network Defense analysis
  • Code review—embedded code, remote procedure calls, mobile and web application code
  • Evaluation of authentication, authorization and auditing structure
  • Data security evolution at rest and in motion Protocol communication review: REST, SOAP, RPC, etc.
  • Security evolutions databases and directories including queries, stored procedures, authentication and ACLS
  • Reviewing privilege escalation attacks
  • Reviewing cryptographic protection on applications and/or delivery mechanisms
  • Reviewing application binary or packages for embedded passwords, keys, certificates
  • Reviewing log handling, insecure storage, and caching/temp file issues
  • Provide policy and compliance gap analysis to major standard and best practices (PCI, HIPAA, HITECH, FDA)
  • Audit Reports & Trails

STANDARDS

We follow the OWASP standards for Internet of Network Penetration testing.

BENEFITS

BENEFITS

  • Validating privacy of data, reliability of IOT app, Verification, Availability and Authorization
  • Validating if the IOT app uses any weak password or missing data encryption.
  • Ensuring apps follows network security-standards and authentication mechanism to authenticate of the required app.
  • Reviewing cryptographic protection on applications and/or delivery mechanisms
  • Reviewing application binary or packages for embedded passwords, keys, certificates
  • Reviewing log handling, insecure storage, and caching/temp file issues

FAQ

Why we need to consider about IOT penetration testing?
As the IoT continues to grow to an estimated 26 billion devices by 2020, Internet-enabled systems will become increasingly attractive targets for cyber-attacks. This also means that we will be more and more vulnerable to malicious attacks.
What is the Importance of considering IOT penetration test?
Organizations have not set up Mechanisms to Remotely Patch Connected. Devices connected products need to be updated regularly for their defences to be watertight to existing and emerging threats. If patches are not updated frequently, the risk of cyber security attacks increases. Despite this, Brisk Infosec’s survey revealed that only 49% of organizations provide remote updates for their IoT devices. Therefore penetration test become mandatory to be on the safe side.
Why is IoT Product Security Lagging?
There are many reasons for this. Since most IoT products are built using inexpensive, low margin chips, chip manufacturers are not adequately incentivized to provide patches for them. At the same time, vendors of IoT products, unlike PC and smartphone manufacturers, may not necessarily have the technical expertise required to develop patches. In some cases, the issue lies in the absence of channels to deliver patches remotely, as organizations rely on users to manually download and install them.
What are the threats to IOT devices?
There are few major threats in IOT devices

  • Denial of Service attacks
  • Eavesdropping/traffic sniffing attacks
  • Data modification attacks
  • Identity spoofing attacks
  • Password attacks
