This chapter addresses cyber security issues related to smart homes. With the introduction of smart devices and systems in our homes, the risks and threats linked to them, and respectively to the smart home inhabitants is growing. The digital world has gradually developed standards, protocols, interfaces, operating systems, programming models and architectures, making both computing and networking a type of plug-and-play environment. The smart house and its services, as we know them at present, form a highly heterogeneous environment, which presents a significant challenge for future users and manufacturers. Healthcare services contain unknown danger for human's life and present real vulnerabilities in interconnected medical devices. The chapter discusses details of cyber security risks, available technologies and methodologies to minimize and mitigate threat vectors.
