In the new era of IoT (Internet of Things), numerous gadgets and services include innovative IoT technologies that provide customers with convenience and improve their quality of life. Smart TVs are typical IoT devices that offer broadcasting services. However, they are susceptible to security intrusions via e-mail, media players, cameras, and internet connectivity. The frequency of hacking through malicious applications installed in Smart TV has rapidly increased. Therefore, appropriate countermeasures should be developed immediately. In April 2017, we (with LG electronics) received the 'world-first' Common Criteria EAL2 (Evaluation Assurance Level 2) certification for Smart TVs. As far as we know, no Smart TV has received a Common Criteria EAL2 security certification until now. This article describes our experience with the certification process and examines several security and reliability aspects of Smart TVs.
