Abstract

© 2017 IEEE. Today, telecommunication architectures and computer centers are focused on information security. However, the new components of these architectures, Internet of Things devices, require a evaluation of the impact on the security of the system that differs from traditional devices. In this work, we evaluate a secure architecture, in which the attack vector is the operating system of the IoT devices. Our work, evaluated in a controlled environment, shows how we can violate all the controls and degenerate a synchronized attack from these devices towards a critical infrastructure of a city.
