In the near future, the Internet of Things (IoT) will be a reality and there will be many sensors in our smart homes. These data sources will eventually upload data to the cloud. In this work we present SPYKE, a network intermediary that stands between IoT devices and the Internet, that provides visibility to which communications are taking place between devices and remote servers; and it also has the ability block and limit connections.
We evaluated SPYKE with respect to the performance and security. It has low performance overhead and is effective against a set of important attacks. SPYKE is available as an open source project and is deployable in inexpensive, off-the-shelf hardware like the Raspberry Pi.
