IoT Device Security Penetration Testing Challenges
- Weak Authentication and Authorization: Many IoT devices lack robust authentication mechanisms, making them susceptible to brute-force attacks or unauthorized access. Additionally, improper authorization can lead to unauthorized users gaining control over the device.
- Lack of Encryption: Inadequate data encryption is a common issue with IoT devices. Data transmitted between the device and the server can be intercepted and compromised, posing a serious threat to user privacy and sensitive information.
- Insecure Communication Protocols: Some IoT devices use outdated or insecure communication protocols, making them an easy target for hackers to intercept and manipulate data traffic.
- Third-Party Integrations: IoT devices often integrate with other services and platforms, increasing the attack surface and potential security risks.
- Privacy Concerns: IoT devices can collect vast amounts of user data, raising significant privacy concerns. If this data is mishandled or accessed by unauthorized individuals, it can lead to severe consequences for both users and companies.
- Resource Constraints: IoT devices often have limited resources, such as processing power and memory, which can hinder the implementation of robust security measures.

AI AEGIS Lab: Secure Your IoT Devices
While timelines can vary based on the complexity of your network infrastructure, an average network penetration testing service with AI AEGIS Lab takes between three and five weeks. We deliver a detailed report within one week from concluding the testing phase.
Phase 1 'Presales'
1-2 Days :
Evaluation: scope of work, cost, start Date, duration
Outcome: Signed Contract
Phase 2 'Predelivery'
Evaluation: External Network, roles, credentials, accesses, etc.
Outcome: Validated and confirmed gathering form.
Phase 3 'Execution'
1-3 Weeks :
Evaluation: executed attacks as stated by scope and rules of engagement.
Outcome: pentest report delivery meeting.
Phase 4 'Post Delivery'
Up to 1 Month:
Evaluation: retest of fixed vulnerabilities.
Outcome: remediation report, letter of attestation and AI AEGIS Lab security certificate.
Phase 5 'Review'
