Abstract

Applications and services based on the Internet of Things (IoT) are increasingly vulnerable to disruption from attack or information theft. Developers and researchers attempt to prevent the growth of such disruption models, mitigate and limit their impact. Meeting these challenges requires understanding the characteristics of things and the technologies that empower the IoT since traditional protection mechanisms are not enough. Moreover, as the growth in mobile device market is pushing the deployment of the IoT, tools and mechanisms to evaluate, analyze and detect security threats in these devices are strongly required. In this context, this paper presents a web tool, named GARMDROID, aimed to help IoT software developers and integrators to evaluate IoT security threats based on the visualization of Android application hardware requests. This procedure is based on the static analysis of permissions requested by Android applications.
