Abstract : A firmware is a software programmed on the hardware to monitor, control or manipulate data from it. The firmware update can help enhance the performance of devices, fix bugs and patch the vulnerabilities in the device. Researchers are proposing various mechanisms for updating firmware in IoT devices. This research project reviews the firmware update mechanisms for IoT proposed by different researchers and proposes a new mechanism to minimize security risks related to firmware updates.
