IoT Security Overview

Why your IoT “must” be secured?

While using the IoT to the maximum of benefit, organisations fail to realise that they are connecting “things”, many of which were never designed with security in mind, because their purpose did not need so. IoT provides different levels of connectivity, thus providing different levels of access to the hackers within the system. Being able to identify what all devices are connected in the IoT system, and what devices are communicating, becomes difficult for the network at times, thus giving easy access to the system. With the increase in the endpoints within this system, there is an exponential increase in the amount of confidential data flowing within the system. This is reason enough for one to realise how valuable this information is, and how necessary the security of an IoT infrastructure is!

How can SecureLayer7 Help?

SecureLayer7’s comprehensive IoT Security Service lets you focus on building your product your way, and takes care of the security of the complete IoT ecosystem in a holistic way. From design to lifecycle management, from superficial automated testing to manual in-depth assessments, and from endpoints to networks to cloud, we have you covered. What makes us different is our approach where the customer’s pressures are also kept in mind and we deliver our services such that the time of delivery is not at all hampered.

IoT Device Security Testing

SecureLayer7 engineers perform the security assessment on device physical interfaces to identify the security threats such as privilege escalation, IoT device exploitation, encryption keys and prioritise the risk at device level to provide with actionable mitigation steps.

IoT Device N/W Services Security Testing

SecureLayer7 engineers test device network services in-depth to find the potential vulnerabilities such as reply attacks, lack of payload verification, Unencrypted Services, and Various injections. We also provide with actionable mitigation recommendations.

IoT Device Application Security Testing

When the SecureLayer7 security engineering team starts with web / mobile interface security assessment, it makes sure that it uncovers the critical software vulnerabilities and prepares the working POC to demonstrate weaknesses in the application with actionable recommendations for mitigations.

IoT Cloud Web Security Testing

SecureLayer7 engineers perform the security testing on the cloud services which can be accessed externally. The cloud API which is used to interact with IoT devices, sensors. SecureLayer7 prepare the actionable POC to demonstrate the vulnerabilities and provide the working recommendations to mitigate them.

IoT Device Firmware Security Assessment

A very important part of the firmware security assessment is to analyze firmware and make sure that minimum baseline is maintained, and that hard coded plain text passwords, encryption keys, and backdoored accounts are not present. SecureLayer7 is not limited to checklists, it has its own approach to assess the firmware.

Wireless Protocol Security Assessments

In the wireless protocol security assessment, SecureLayer7 security engineers perform security testing on wireless protocols used for the device communication. They extensively do research on Bluetooth LE, RF analysis, ZigBee, and 6LoWAPN. They also follow the minimum baseline standards for the device communication protocol.

SecureLayer7 Service and Deliverables


The identification of vulnerabilities in your system along with the knowledge of major areas of exploitation is critical. But what is more important is to be able to convey to you all this information in a clear and concise way. This report will include all the information about the security controls assessed as well as an analysis of the areas that need to be looked into for achieving the required amount of security.
The report is systematically designed into two parts: the high level management report suitable for the understanding of management personnel, and an in-depth technical document for the technical staff to understand the underlying risks along with recommendations and preventive countermeasures. download the sample VAPT report and VAPT datasheet using following link.
