Recently, the smart farm development using a PC and smart phone to manag the farm for improving competitiveness is in progress. In the smart farm, by using the various ICT technology including RFID, Wi-Fi, ZigBee, Wireless LAN, and etc., the growing environment of the crop and animals can be managed with the remote. By using the network including not only the TCP/IP based wired network but also ZigBee, Wireless LAN, and etc., each of the devices installed in the smart farm transmits the growing environment data to the server. So, smart farms have information and network security vulnerability. Therefore, we propose the method that analyzes the security vulnerability which can begenerated in the smart farm and user authentication method.
