lecture: Smart Home Security with Tor
Using TOR for securing Smart Homes from prying eyes
The IoT is emerging as the third wave in the development of the Internet. We have a great danger with IoT because of the surveillance by an individual hacker or a state actor to exploit the very private information of individuals or companies. We can secure our “Smart Homes” by using TOR.
Recent advances in information and communication technologies and embedded systems have given rise to a new disruptive technology: the Internet of Things (IoT). Internet of things (IoT) is expected to have a massive impact on consumer products, business and wider culture, but these are still early days.
The Internet of Things is a phenomenon where tiny machines have the ability to sense, respond, compute, and connect to the Internet, providing unprecedented access to control things and the environment around us. Along with advancement lies the problem going hand-to-hand.There have been many reports on how this things can be exploited to do various things in the Digital World.We need security because we don’t want others to control our home or disturb our privacy in our homes. TOR having been helping many people towards “Safe and Secure Browsing”. We can use “Tor” for securing our “Smart Home” so that we may not face the situations where we locked out by our home.
Security is extremely important for achieving this goal. As this worldwide network of interconnected objects can be exploited anywhere by anyone and anytime, it is necessary to enhance it with strong security foundations able to give birth to a world-changing paradigm.
The sense of fear that arises when using “Smart Homes” is addressed since, recently we have seen the “Dark Side” of Smart Homes and Internet of Things where people became aware of the risks of using more “IoT” which makes them more vulnerable and also effects their privacy.
