Abstract: The accelerated spread of the IoT and rapid development of modern communication networks and technologies have connected the physical world with computational elements in the smart home environment. The smart home is based on IoT technology which facilitates device observing in order to increase the availability of various tools for securing home automation. Thus, it has been used as a feature of the future wireless sensor network to be able to operate without human intervention. However, it is vulnerable to vulnerabilities and security threats. Due to interconnected, heterogeneous, and dynamic nature of the smart home, challenges related to security, authentication, and confidentiality are created. In this paper attacks on the security of smart homes are investigated to assess their impact on the security of the system as a whole. The technologies and security solutions in such environment are also identified. Therefore, current security measures are discussed to counter such security attacks.
