Frailty is a clinical syndrome prevalent among the older population, characterized by unintentional weight loss, exhaustion being associated with a decline in cognitive and physiological functions. Ambient Assisted Living can be used for coping through solutions based on smart devices that help older people to cope with frailty. In this paper, we present a quantitative research to determine the user requirements for developing a system to assist people with frailty.

Internet of Things (IoT) systems are becoming widely used, which makes them to be a high-value target for both hackers and crackers. From gaining access to sensitive information to using them as bots for complex attacks, the variety of advantages after exploiting different security vulnerabilities makes the security of IoT devices to be one of the most challenging desideratum for cyber security experts. In this paper, we will propose a new IoT system, designed to ensure five data principles: confidentiality, integrity, availability, authentication and authorization. The innovative aspects are both the usage of a web-based communication and a custom dynamic data request structure.
