Abstract | Full Text

This article is devoted to the research of the possible vulnerabilities of the automated building management system, based on X10 technology. X10 technology is responsible for managing the electronic modules, i.e. all the electrical appliance of the Smart House. Since the X10 does not have a sufficient level of security, malefactor can get into the system and manage all electrical appliances of the house that can lead not only to victim intimidation but also to fire.
