What is IoT Penetration Testing?

At its core, the Internet of Things (IoT) refers to a vast array of physical devices — from smart home appliances and security systems to industrial sensors and healthcare monitors — all interconnected via the Internet, along with their associated software, hardware, and networks. The extensive connectivity of IoT devices to the internet inherently raises significant security concerns. Companies are expected to have concerns over their IoT security as the ever-increasing number of smart devices used for business operations in today opens up a much broader attack surface for cyber-attacks. In other words, the number of entry points available for hackers nowadays is massive. Such security breaches may lead to exceptional financial losses, data and identity theft, compliance issues, unauthorized use of IoT devices, and costly downtime.

IoT Penetration Testing is a critical process that involves methodically evaluating IoT devices to identify vulnerabilities within their security frameworks that malicious unauthorized users may target to infiltrate a business network. At Secragon, we specialize in predominantly manual penetration tests, conducted by experienced ethical hackers. We leverage industry-standard methodologies alongside a unique mix of public and proprietary, in-house developed exploits. Our approach is specifically designed to delve deep into the security architecture, uncovering complex and yet-to-be-discovered vulnerabilities. This ensures a comprehensive security assessment is conducted under safe and controlled conditions, providing a forward-thinking defense against potential future threats.

We don’t just point out security holes; we help you solve them and comply with standards and regulations.

The growing prevalence of Internet of Things (IoT) systems makes their security more critical than ever. From individual endpoints to the overall architecture, every aspect of an IoT ecosystem can present potential vulnerabilities.

Protecting the information transmitted through IoT devices significantly reduces the risk of data breaches and security incidents.

As industries evolve, so do cybersecurity standards. Meet legal and regulatory requirements for data security.

IoT Penetration Testing strengthens security in remote work setups, where IoT devices are more exposed to risks on less secure home networks.

Decrease the likelihood of IoT-related disruptions or performance issues, which can impact user experience and business operations.

Minimize the number of potential attack points within the ecosystem, thereby reducing the overall risk of cyber attacks and breaches.

Why Conduct an IoT Penetration Test?

The growing prevalence of Internet of Things (IoT) systems makes their security more critical than ever. From individual endpoints to the overall architecture, every aspect of an IoT ecosystem can present potential vulnerabilities.


When Should You Perform IoT Penetration Testing?

IoT Penetration Testing should be performed as frequently as required by the organizational security policy. In addition to the regular schedule, penetration testing is particularly advisable in the following situations:

New IoT Devices or Systems

Conduct tests to identify and fix any security vulnerabilities before they are accessible to users.

Firmware or Software Updates

Important to ensure that updates or changes haven’t introduced new security risks.

Part of Security Audits

Perform these tests periodically, for example, annually, as a component of your ongoing security maintenance strategy.

Security Breach or Incident

Necessary to fully understand the breach’s impact and address all vulnerabilities exposed by the incident.

Emerging Threats or Vulnerabilities

Essential whenever new threats are identified that could potentially compromise the IoT ecosystem.

New Systems or Technologies

To ensure that any new integrations or technological advancements do not introduce security weaknesses.

What Will Be Assessed During an IoT Penetration Test?

IoT penetration testing involves a detailed examination, focusing on several critical areas:


Evaluating the physical and digital security features of IoT devices, including aspects like firmware, data storage, and encryption mechanisms.


Analyzing software applications linked with IoT devices, including APIs, web interfaces, and mobile apps for potential security weaknesses.


Assessing how devices communicate over networks to identify vulnerabilities in data transmission and reception, focusing on the security of wireless protocols.


Examining how individual IoT devices interact within the broader ecosystem, including dependencies on external services and cloud platforms.

Authentication and
Authorization Processes

Examining the mechanisms for user authentication and authorization to prevent unauthorized access.


Depending on the specific IoT setup, additional areas like configuration and patch management processes, user privacy protection, and compliance with relevant standards and regulations may also be evaluated.

Frequently Asked Questions

Couldn’t find the information you were looking for?

What information is needed to scope an IoT pentest?

To scope an IoT penetration test, detailed information about the IoT ecosystem is required, including the types and functions of devices, network architecture, current security measures, software details, and any specific compliance requirements or operational constraints. This comprehensive overview enables a tailored and effective testing approach.

How fast can I get an IoT Penetration Test?

A test can typically be scheduled within 5-10 days following a scoping call. If you need an urgent one, reach out to us immediately—we’re ready to assist. Connect with us now to secure your spot!

What's the difference between a vulnerability scan and penetration testing?

Vulnerability scans are automated and look for known vulnerabilities, while penetration testing is a more comprehensive approach that involves simulating actual cyberattacks to find vulnerabilities.

How much does an IoT Penetration test cost?

The cost of an IoT Penetration Test can vary widely depending on several factors, such as the complexity and size of the IoT ecosystem, the specific requirements of the testing (like depth and breadth of coverage), and the testing methodology used. At Secragon we provide customized solutions based on the needs and budget of our clients.
