In an attempt to help users build trust in their IoT devices, a team of Princeton researchers has developed an open-source desktop tool that anyone can download via a one-click install process. The tool, Princeton IoT Inspector, automatically discovers IoT devices and analyzes their network traffic.
Using graphs and tables, the tool helps users identify security and privacy issues. The best part, for the non-tech-savvy, is that requires minimal technical skills and no special hardware.
The team developed the tool in an attempt to answer questions that users should be thinking about as they continue to connect their homes to the Internet.
