Notes

Abstract: The five basic human senses – sight, hearing, taste, smell, and touch have all been reproduced to a certain capacity using technology. Technological devices that reproduce the senses are commonly referred to as sensors. IoT is a concept defined by the interaction of one or more sensing device with the internet. There has been a massive adoption rate of IoT devices since its applicability in our daily lives are endless, however like most technological advancements security and privacy are afterthoughts for device manufacturers. IoT manufacturers in a move to lure more users focus on a seamless user experience of the devices, which comes at a detriment of security. The consumers of the IoT devices also favor convenience above security and privacy. The IoT focus for this paper is smart thermostats. Four key security and privacy guidelines were analyzed. The paper will align the core focus of smart IoT devices using the People, Technology, and Information model. We use Brenda Dervin sense making model to explain human behavior and way of reasoning with making purchasing decisions of smart thermostats. Recommendations will be provided to highlight the importance of security and privacy by using OWASP (OWASP, 2017).
