Project aims to make smart home devices more secure, private

HANOVER, N.H. (AP) — Researchers at Dartmouth College and six other academic institutions are collaborating on a national project to make “smart home” products more secure and private.

The $10 million, five-year project funded by the National Science Foundation comes as households increasingly rely on internet connected home devices ranging from refrigerators to baby monitors. David Kotz, a computer science professor and lead investigator for the project, says as home technology changes, people need to be able to feel safe from prying eyes.

The project also includes teams from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Johns Hopkins University, the University of Maryland, the University of Michigan, Morgan State University and Tufts University.
