ABSTRACT

Alexa, Can I Trust You?   [open pdf - 260KB]

"Intelligent Virtual Assistants (IVAs) open a new world, a world where you can talk to a machine as if it were a human and the machine will perform the work you request. [...] Ideally, such conversations should be solely between you and the device assisting you. But are they? Do you know? Where is the trust? [...] In this column, we urge readers to think about the potential security and privacy concerns of this technology. [...] The fact that IVAs are installed in private homes makes this a public-facing challenge, and one that attracts instant media attention when problems arise. To our knowledge, security and privacy threats of these IVAs have not received enough attention."
