University of Michigan cybersecurity researchers show how they can hack into Samsung’s SmartThings, a top-selling Internet of Things platform for consumers. The vulnerabilities are covered in Wired: https://www.wired.com/2016/05/flaws-s...
The University of Michigan College of Engineering is one of the world’s top engineering schools. Michigan Engineering is home to 12 highly-ranked departments, and its research budget is among the largest of any public university.
In their experimental set-up, the researchers were able to essentially get the PIN code to the home’s front door. “At least today, with the one public IoT software platform we looked at, which has been around for several years, there are significant design vulnerabilities from a security perspective” said Atul Prakash, a professor of computer science and engineering at the University of Michigan. Prakash is a professor of electrical engineering and computer science. http://web.eecs.umich.edu/~aprakash/
