IoT Security Assessment

Product & Device Security

Smart Security for your Smart Devices

The Internet of Things (IoT) presents unique challenges for securing smart devices and connected products. We assess your full connected stack, from the hardware, firmware, operating system, software, network protocols, web services, and cloud infrastructure they interact with. Our IoT methodology includes hardware testing, penetration testing, and static code analysis. The recommendations we provide focus on applying security controls across your stack capable of defending against a sophisticated and persistent adversary.

Our Approach to IoT Security


Securing and Testing

Securing and testing IoT security requires a unique skill set and approach. nVisium performs an initial threat model of the IoT device’s infrastructure and performs testing against its hardware, software, APIs, as well as all the different protocols being used.

Hybrid Assessments

The team at nVisium performs hybrid assessments, which include a source code (web, API, operating system, infrastructure configuration, firmware, drivers, microservices, etc.) review and reverse engineering of the product(s).

Services Provided for

IoT Reviews

Source Code Review

nVisium will use a combination of static source code analysis and manual inspection to identify vulnerabilities in the system’s source code.

Software & Hardware Testing

nVisium will assess the IoT system dynamically through manual interaction to find and validate vulnerabilities.

Forensic Analysis

nVisium will analyze the physical devices for extraneous data leakage and pivot points that may affect the overall security posture of the IoT system and its users.

Reverse Engineering

nVisium will inspect the provided binaries for flaws in compilation and deployment that may be leveraged by an attacker.
