ABSTRACT
Future homes will be populated with large numbers of robots
with diverse functionalities, ranging from chore robots to el-
der care robots to entertainment robots. While household
robots will offer numerous benefits, they also have the po-
tential to introduce new security and privacy vulnerabilities
into the home. Our research consists of three parts. First, to
serve as a foundation for our study, we experimentally ana-
lyze three of today's household robots for security and pri-
vacy vulnerabilities: the WowWee Rovio, the Erector Spy-
kee, and the WowWee RoboSapien V2. Second, we synthe-
size the results of our experimental analyses and identify key
