A Primer for Newbie Companies Moving into Testing The Internet of Things (IoT) Devices

Reading Time: 1 minute

This eBook is written to help companies and testers entering the environment of software Internet of Things (IoT) testing and evaluation. The ebook is created as starting guide to help readers understand what testing and how to find errors (bugs) in IoT software. This ebook maps specific attacks excerpted from “Software Test Attacks to Break Mobile and Embedded Devices” (by Jon Duncan Hagar) to IoT. I hope this book starts testers discovering the concepts and approaches for assessing the quality(ies) of the software driving IoT and the overall goodness of system devices. It provides knowledge, but a tester must practice the concepts and attacks in order to build skills.

        Hi Alejandra,

        That is strange as I am using Chrome and it works fine. The eBook pop up in a new tab. By any chance is there a firewall in your organisation that prevents the download of documents from our website?
