IoT Devices: Security and Privacy Labels Research – Lorrie Cranor – PSW #645

April 7, 2020

At Carnegie Mellon University we are designing a usable security and privacy label for smart devices to help consumers make informed choices about Internet of Things device purchases and encourage manufacturers to disclose their privacy and security practices. The label includes information on privacy and security practices of the smart device, such as the type of data the device collects and whether or not the device gets automatic security updates. Based on research with both consumers and experts, we have designed a two-layer label that includes a simple, understandable primary layer for consumers and a more detailed secondary layer that includes information important to experts.

IoT Devices: Security and Privacy Labels Research

The IoT security and privacy label and 2 research papers are at https://iotsecurityprivacy.org

Lorrie also talked about another paper that isn’t published yet in which they did a large user study to find out whether users understand the factors in the label and whether they would influence their purchase decisions.

The IoT privacy infrastructure is at https://www.iotprivacy.io/ (See the video in the bottom left of the front page).
