3. Challenges of Smart City through IOT


Security is one of the biggest and most significant issue

for the deployment of IoT. With the increase in how
many devices are connected on the internet,
opportunities and incentives increase for exploiting
vulnerabilities. Any one poorly designed device can be
used to leak user data as hackers don’t need to exploit
every device but just the weakest link. Such exploits
can be really bad and even harm people’s safety and
health. For example: A weekly secured IOT based
