Abstract

The Internet of Things connects various electronic devices and these can range from the expensive, such as cars or computers, to the mundane, such as toasters or light bulbs and this creates a major security problem. While attention is paid to the complex expensive items, the inexpensive items, although connected to the same network, are often overlooked. With a desperate race to produce more for less and to connect more items to the network, these inexpensive items are overlooked, never updated and in many cases, are downright dangerous when connected to a network and this makes the Internet insecure for everyone else.
