Security Over Smart Home Automation Systems: A Survey
Published 2018 · Computer Science
Internet of Things (IoT) is growing every day since it has allowed the interconnection of different devices existent in smart environments e.g. home environment, and because it has allowed improving or supporting different services such as physical security, energy consumption management, entertainment among others. The smart home environment, also known as Smart Home Automation Systems (SHAS), has properly attacked and solved the domestic needs of families around the world. However, in spite of having a protocol stack architecture to govern the rules of communication and exchange of information, the security and privacy requirements have been displaced to a second place. For this reason, this paper surveys several previous works from the security perspective with the purpose of providing the most important approaches in this field. Additionally, this work provides recommendations and best practices from different security perspectives.
