This study aims at securing Smart Home Environments from cyber threats by highlighting good practices that apply to every step of a product lifecycle: its development, its integration in Smart Home Environments, and its usage and maintenance until end-of-life. The study also highlights the applicability of the security measures to different types of devices.
The good practices apply to manufacturers, vendors, solution providers for hardware and software, and developers. It can be used to assess their current security level, and evaluate the implementation of new security measures. European citizens, standardisation bodies, researchers and policy makers could also find an interest in this study.
