  • Introduction:
  •  

    IoT is a huge network of devices that are able to sense and hold sensitive information about their owner/surroundings. IoT has seen its journey from implausible and impossible to sustainable and tenable. Its rate of expansion into various grounds from agriculture to sports; personal health to intelligent tra?c detection; waste management to smart homes is astonishing, dramatic, and unforeseen. With such vast adaptability and functionality, its security remains the biggest concern because, in contrast to the traditional networks, IoT faces huge vulnerabilities, some of which are inherent and others explicit. The existing security solutions cannot be implemented in IoT because of its unique characteristics. Therefore, there is a dire need to develop novel security procedures be?tting IoT. Recent ransomware attacks like WannaCry and NotPetya have shattered the illusion that a back-up can protect an organization’s digital data from being hacked. If huge organizations were forced to pay ransom, one can only imagine the situation when a single individual is involved.
