Honeypot experiment reveals what hackers want from IoT devices

A three-year-long honeypot experiment featuring simulated low-interaction IoT devices of various types and locations gives a clear idea of why actors target specific devices.

More specifically, the honeypot was meant to create a sufficiently diverse ecosystem and cluster the generated data in a way that determines the goals of adversaries.

IoT (Internet of Things) devices are a booming market that includes small internet-connected devices such as cameras, lights, doorbells, smart TVs, motion sensors, speakers, thermostats, and many more.
