    Analysis of several specific cases and a bit of overview later in the book OK thing to read though nothing fascinating

    The book provides a decent survey of common Internet of Things vulnerabilities and security concerns, including a couple of in depth examples of exploits The last couple of chapters are really the most interesting if you re looking for a quick introduction to IoT security.

    Interesting expos of some insecurities of IoT devices.

    This book is a bit of mixed bag with respect to the vulnerabilities of internet connected devices to hacking The book goes into the gory technical details of how things from baby monitors to modern vehicles can be hacked Then finishes with a loose discussion on how to address this issue of device security Reading this book has certainly made me aware of the poor security of many internet connected devices out there on the market It doesn t really provide me with a way that I proactive face up t [...]

    Very interesting book to skim through Gives a good perspective of what it can be done with IoT Hacking, how secure are your IoT devices and raise awareness of the security issues.I would suggest to anyone that has a background in software hardware engineering and is using modern IoT technology in their house or work.
