The arrival of the Internet of Things (IoT) into our daily lives in various forms such as home appliances and wearable devices has dominated Internet usage. This dominant behavior left network practitioners with many questions to be answered related to IoT devices including development, deployment, security, privacy, and ethics. For every new device, a set of procedures and algorithms need to be developed to enable them to connect, interact, monitor, analyze, and augment the device’s physical attributes. Given that the data generated and processed by the IoT devices contain a large amount of private information; processing, archiving, and preserving information security of the data collected from IoT devices is an important issue that cannot be neglected. In this paper we discuss the necessity and elaboration of IoT privacy and security in primarily teaching institutions, including high schools and middle schools is a necessity. This paper provides guidelines to set up an in-house cybersecurity lab, along with a toolset that is specifically designed and implemented as an open-source smart-home traffic measurement, visualization, and analysis. One of the advantages of this toolset is that it will allow teaching institutes to elaborate IoT Privacy and security inside their classroom and beyond.
