Some of our favorite and most trusted IoT devices help make us feel secure in our homes. From garage door openers to the locks on our front doors, we trust these devices to recognize and alert us when people are entering our home. It should come as no surprise that these too are subject to attack.

Steve Povolny is head of advanced research at McAfee; we discuss a pair of research projects they recently published involving popular IoT devices.
