IoT devices can recognize voice commands and are now learning to communicate using inaudible sounds. This could be a vulnerability, as a bogus voice or sound command could hack your device.
- [Instructor] A subliminal message is a concealed message…that is outside of the range of normal limits…of human hearing or visual perception.…Advertisers use subliminal messages to convey a message…to the user.…IoT devices can recognize voice commands…and now are learning to communicate using inaudible sounds.…The sounds are like a subliminal message.…We can't hear them, but they exist.…
Using sound to communicate with commands…is not a new concept.…Reporting hacking activity began as early as 1971,…when John Draper, also known as Captain Crunch,…developed blue box phone phreaking,…which uses frequencies or tones to manipulate…telephone switching hardware in order to make phone calls.…Currently, researchers have discovered several voice…and sound attacks with IoT devices.…
One threat uses an inaudible high frequency sound…that creates a tracking feature…and can covertly track a person's online behavior…using phones, TVs, tablets, and computers.…Using audio beacons is a more accurate way…to track users across devices,…
In this course, join Lisa Bock as she explores the relationship between security, privacy, and the IoT. Lisa discusses how the vulnerabilities in IoT devices have the potential to compromise user privacy and make them more susceptible to attacks and glitches. In addition, she discusses IoT privacy concerns; existing standards, regulations, and guidelines, such as HIPAA and Sarbanes-Oxley; and proposed standards and legislation that are currently in the works to ensure the privacy of the data collected on the IoT.
