Humans in the loop: Cyber security aspects in the consumer IoT context

Currently, the consumer electronics (CE) community largely ignore the humans in the loop, while framing cyber security solutions in the IoT context. In this work, we stress on the need towards a human-centric approach to cyber security by shifting focus from “humans as a problem” to “humans as a solution”. We propose a Security & Privacy Preserving (SPP) framework for illustrating how a human-centric approach can be initiated, what are its important components, and how security & privacy can be preserved with a human focus.
