This paper investigates the vulnerability of data transmission protocols used in smart home control systems, focusing on analyzing the communication protocols used in these systems. The spread of interconnected devices and the Internet of Things (IoT) has led to growing concerns about data privacy, unauthorized access, and potential cyberattacks. An in-depth analysis of various communication protocols used in the smart home environment was conducted, which allowed us to identify their advantages and disadvantages from a security perspective. Based on the analysis, recommendations are made for selecting communication protocols that meet the principles of security and confidentiality in the “Smart Home” environment.
