The Current and Future Status of IoT Security Challenges in Practice


Objective: This study presents IoT security features, IoT security layers’ challenges with application layer and network layer. Methods/Findings: Major security concerns of IoT development are caused by heterogeneity of interconnected entities as well as incompatibility of development and communication protocols used. Authentication, integrity, and availability are compromised by such attacks as man-in-the-middle, replay, and denial of services attacks. Looking into the future, blockchain and software-defined network technologies, are promising to deliver a more secured IoT operational environment, and could, therefore, reduce associated cyber-attack instances. Application: Furthermore, IoT security solution with current IoT security arrangements incorporate trust foundation, a move towards a united design and architecture is also discussed. 

Keywords: Cyber Security, Cybersecurity, Cyber-Security, Computer Security, IoT Security Futures, and IoT Security Solutions, Risk
