Internet of Things (IoT): A Survey on Privacy Issues and Security

Authors(1) :-Vikas B O

Internet of Things (IoT) is a novel area of research to be worked on as it provides intelligent collaboration with devices anytime and anywhere. But it poses various challenges for its enormous adaptability i.e. Security and Privacy. The main objective of this research paper is to highlight the security and privacy aspect of IoT and also highlight various security threats which are prevalent right now in each and every layer of IoT. Therefore, there is a bad need towards research to be undertaken especially in area of security and privacy of IoT so to make this technology secure and easy to adopt by users.
