The security of the operator’s network is an important aspect of everyday operation that is growing due to the increased complexity of consumer home equipment and service offerings, emerging technology like Android TV and privacy protection legislations. While the servers and backend infrastructures are periodically pen-tested, the device/STB/SmartTV network and device security are often overlooked. The pen-testing of the backend considers just the general attacker profile while neglecting the potential security breaches and costs coming from the devices. It is especially vital for network providers to assure the security of their devices, because they are not only responsible for the security of their products, but for the personal data of their customers. The potential data leakage creates risks of attacks on operator’s infrastructure through the weakened customer channels. Another network providers’ challenge is liability and revenue decline that is caused by privacy violations and loss of network availability.
