Talk 2

Smriti Bhatt, Texas A&M University


Wearable IoT devices and Cyber Warfare: With the emerging IoT landscape, wearable connected devices have gained popularity for health-related including as a fashion trend. Wearable devices collect sensitive user data, store it, and disseminate it to other points in the network. Use of these IoT devices by specific officials, especially with top security clearance, can enable cyber attackers to exploit these devices to get access to security sensitive data and thus, run more targeted attacks, on the nation. For example, fitness trackers leaked the movement of troops as the Department of Defense (DoD) found. In the future, we have a persistent risk that the wearable IoT devices weaknesses and vulnerabilities will be exploited to execute Cyber Warfare.
