This part of ISO/IEC 24767 specifies home network security requirements that may come from inside or outside a home. It serves as a foundation for the development of security services against threats affecting the home environment.
The discussions about security requirements in this standard are presented in a relatively informal manner. Although many of the items discussed here are expected to guide the design of security mechanisms applied either inside home networks or through the Internet, they are not considered formal requirements.
Various devices are connected to the home network; see Figure 1. The devices of the "living network", the devices for "A/V entertainment" and the devices for "informational applications" provide different features and performance. This standard provides means to analyse the risks for each networked device and to define its specific "security requirements".
