Information Security
EXECUTIVE SUMMARYIoT stands for Internet of Things. It is the network of physical devices, vehicles andvarious other items embedded with sensors, electronics and software as well as networkconnectivity. This enables these devices or objects to gather and exchange data over network.There are various features and applications of IoT that are covered in this project. Certain issuesregarding security as well as privacy are also present in IoT. Some of the applications of IoT areConnected Cars, Wearables, etc. It also contributes in the field of agriculture.

INTRODUCTIONThe Internet of Things can be simply defined as a system of interconnectedcomputational devices, digital and mechanical machines, people, objects or animals that aregiven with unique identifiers and capability of transferring data over a network by not includinginteraction between manand computers or humans and humans(Kelly and et.al. 2013). Itincludes various web enabled devices that are used for collecting, sending and acting on datawhich they achieve from their surrounding environment using embedded sensors as well ascommunication hardware and processors. Present report is based on the Internet of Thingswhereby their features as well as security issues are described.Research reportIoT is connecting the world. Itis very important in this present era. Some of the featuresor importance of IoT are described as below:Environment monitoring:It can develop a device that helps in measuring soil or water.This also give suggestion about quality of soil and states which type of soil is required bydifferent plants.It can also assist in making a warning system that warns beforeoccurrence of any disaster like Tsunami or earthquake (Lee and Lee, 2015). This canprevent large number of lives and damages that might occur from those disasters.Infrastructure management:Management of infrastructure can be done by using IoT.The monitoring and tracking can be done and if any issue rises in any urban or ruralinfrastructure like railway or bridges. This can effectively reduce the risk of any failure inits strength as it can be monitored and alarmed as soon as possible for repairing it.Energy management:Management of energy can be classified with systems which areconnected to internet with different sensors for reducing the consumption of power likecloud based, remote control for oven, etc.Medical and health care system:Healthcare systems assist in improving state ofpatient. If IoT is introduced in the medical system then it can improve the overall healthcare sector as it represents an automatic program that monitors the state of patients andreminds them time of taking different medicines. .Relevant technologies of IoTThere are various technologies for IoT security that are listed as below:1
