Modelling Cyberattacks in Internet of Things environments

Thomas Stevens

Supervised by Omer F Rana, Moderated by Richard Booth

The aim of this project is to better understand the types of cyberattacks that take place within Internet of Things (IoT) devices - such as the recent attach on DNS servers operated by Dyn. The student is expected to investigate the types of attacks that can: (i) be initiated through IoT devices; (ii) be targetted to IoT devices. The student will be expected to use a threat modelling approach to characterise such attacks. It is expected that students will also example a few scenarios of such attacks using the IoT lab in COMSCI.
