    Clever breaches demonstrate IoT security gaps - Research Saturday

    Clever breaches demonstrate IoT security gaps - Research Saturday

    Some of our favorite and most trusted IoT devices help make us feel secure in our homes. From garage door openers to the locks on our front doors, we trust these devices to recognize and alert us when people are entering our home. It should come as no surprise that these too are subject to attack. 
    Steve Povolny is head of advanced research at McAfee; we discuss a pair of research projects they recently published involving popular IoT devices. 
    The research can be found here:
    McAfee Advanced Threat Research demo McLear NFC Ring
    McAfee Advanced Threat Research Demo Chamberlain MyQ
    The CyberWire's Research Saturday is presented by Juniper Networks.
    Thanks to our sponsor Enveil, closing the last gap in data security.
