Abstract

The increase in IoT sensing and actuating devices that are seamlessly integrated into the environment is often leading to a mistrust of users as it becomes impossible to spot deployed IoT devices and understand their purposes and capabilities. One approach is to provide an appropriate mechanism of mapping the IoT and address stakeholder requirements. However, providing comprehensive maps of the IoT may expose a number of vulnerabilities that need to be addressed. We conducted a comprehensive literature survey outlining the limitations of the existing body of work regarding the mapping of the IoT and conducting an appropriate threat analysis. We subsequently applied the STRIDE model to two case studies (smart campus and urban environment) to identify a set of potential vulnerabilities and approaches at addressing these issues in the context of IoT maps.
