How to footprint, report and remotely secure compromised IoT devices

The increase of IoT consumer devices connected to the Internet, along with the lack in cybersecurity awareness among their owners, has established a breeding ground for new malware families targeting IoT devices. An example of IoT malware is the MIRAI botnet, responsible for the biggest DDoS ever detected in the history of the Internet, occurred on October 2016. Since then, many MIRAI variants have appeared, competing among themselves in order to infect as many as possible IoT devices. This article describes a software infrastructure, called Fooresec, which aims to remotely footprint, report and secure those devices. It also presents experimental results, produced from the data collected so far by using a working prototype of the proposed infrastructure, which indicate the validity of the approach.
