Supervised by George Theodorakopoulos; Moderated by Xianfang Sun

Internet of Things (IoT) devices are becoming increasingly common and so are the security risks that come with them. The aim of this project is to investigate a) Whether fingerprints for certain IoT devices be identified through passive monitoring of the network traffic? b) In an IoT environment, can the types of devices present be determined using the device type fingerprint discovered in part a?
