Security for the Connected Home Protects Against Virtual Intruders
Despite a cute exterior, CUJO acts as a watchdog for the growing proliferation of the Internet of Things
Living in the future is great. Our stoves talk to our refrigerators, and our smartphones communicate with our thermostats and doors. Smart homes are the newest iteration in our growing dependence on computers in every device. But the convenience does not come without risk. Interactive items are vulnerable to hacking, which means burglars can now use your Wi-Fi instead of lockpicks to access your home and data. CUJO is a proposed device to provide security for your home network, including all the devices you’ve been overlooking.
