Abstract [en]

The increasing connectivity of the modern society means that connected de- vices can be reached without physical access. This means that security risks that previously only existed in the physical realm now also exist digitally. Developing secure IoT-devices (Internet of Things) is no easy feat and it is some- thing that is often not taken into significant consideration during development of the IoT-devices. In this thesis it is examined whether it is possible to develop a self-spreading computer worm for an AutoPi dongle. For this thesis a literature study was performed to give knowledge about computer worms which was then used to develop a self-spreading computer worm for the AutoPi. The computer worm that was developed is based on a previously found vulnerability in a 2019 thesis by Burdzovic and Matsson. This computer worm can spread over AutoPi devices and has been confirmed to be able to spread over two AutoPi devices. This demonstrates that AutoPi has a vulnerability that could be used to cause societal harm.

Abstract [sv]

Det allt mer uppkopplade moderna samhället innebär att anslutna enheter kan nås utan fysisk åtkomst. Det innebär att säkerhetsrisker som tidigare enbart existerade rent fysiskt nu också existerar digitalt. Att utveckla säkra IoT-enheter (Sakernas internet) är svårt och säkerhet är något som ofta inte tas i större be- aktning under utvecklingen av IoT-enheter. I denna rapport undersöks huruvida det är möjligt att utveckla en självspridande internetmask för en AutoPi bildongel. För avhandlingen gjordes en litteraturstudie för att ge kunskap om internetmaskar som sedan användes för att utveckla en självspridande internetmask till AutoPi. Internetmasken som utvecklades är baserad på en tidigare funnen säkerhetsbrist i ett examensarbete av Burdzovic och Matsson. Denna internetmask kan sprida sig över AutoPi bildonglar och har bekräftats genom att spridas över två AutoPi bildonglar. Detta påvisar att AutoPi har en under- liggande säkerhetsbrist som kan utnyttjas för att orsaka samhällelig skada.
