Title/Topic: Demystifying and exploiting IoT Timeout Behaviors in Smart Home
Time: 2:00 - 2:50 pm EST
Location: https://caecommunity.zoom.us/j/83488759886

Just log in as “Guest” and enter your name. No password required.

Audience: Students, Professors, Govt.

Presenter(s): Chenglong Fu, University of North Carolina Charlotte

Description: Although the Transport Layer Security (TLS) has been widely adopted to protect communications between IoT devices and servers, we find that the timeout detection in the TCP layer is decoupled from data protection in the Transport Layer Security (TLS) layer. This makes it possible to delay IoT messages without triggering alerts. Based on observation, we propose novel the Phantom-Delay attack and Delay-based Automation Interference (DAI) attack for smart home IoT systems that can induce hazardous and persistent consequences stealthily. Our evaluation demonstrates the applicability of our attacks on more than 50 popular IoT devices. The problem has been reported to the corresponding vendors and acknowledged by Google, Ring, and SimpliSafe.
