KNX is a home and building automation standard for a typical application area of environmental control of building lighting/shading services, as well as Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC). KNXnet/IP protocol defines mechanisms for using KNX home and building automation technology on top of the IP protocol using client/server architecture. Due the nature of KNXnet/IP protocol it presents some connectivity and security problems inherent to the protocol definition. In this paper, the authors propose some mechanisms for trying to fix these problems and finally, they implement and test them using real KNX devices.
