This research project aims to systematically assess and analyze security vulnerabilities in accessibility technology, specifically devices related to the American Disabilities Act (ADA), such as wheelchair lifts, ADA buttons, and light switches. The project focuses on the potential risks associated with radio frequency (RF) replay attacks, a well-documented threat in IoT security. By examining the vulnerabilities and consequences of RF replay attacks in these critical areas, the research seeks to enhance the security and safety of individuals with disabilities and the broader public. The project also explores potential countermeasures and ethical considerations for responsible vulnerability disclosure, contributing to the fields of accessibility technology, IoT security, and ethical cybersecurity practices.
