To ensure evolution of the IoT into a secure infrastructure, it is indispensable to exhaustively identify the features of the IoT, which could be exploited to pose threat to either the infrastructure or its stakeholders. This chapter presents an in-depth analysis of the vulnerability space of the IoT, and attempts to create specialized “threat spaces" by providing an exhaustive threat taxonomy. We identify a new genre of threats: Reflective Trust and Reputation Threats.
