AB - Internet-connected devices are increasingly present in our homes, and privacybreaches, data thefts, and security threats are becoming commonplace. In orderto avoid these, we must first understand the behaviour of these devices. In this work, we analyse network traces from a testbed of common IoT devices,and describe general methods for fingerprinting their behavior. We then use theinformation and insights derived from this data to assess where privacy andsecurity risks manifest themselves, as well as how device behavior affectsbandwidth. We demonstrate simple measures that circumvent attempts at securingdevices and protecting privacy.
