Abstract: With the advent of smart devices, a huge paradigm shift is observed in the way the users define service quality. Further, these devices or Internet of Things (IoT) devices as they are generally addressed, have acted as catalyst for comfort and connectivity and are building blocks of Smart City environment. With limited thought related to security is involved during the deployment of such devices, they offer a dangerous environment of opportunity to the attackers from the internet; which not only jeopardize network security, bus also the privacy of the users. Hence, it is of utmost importance to address the security concerns in smart city environment. This paper attempts to study the current IoT technologies deployed in a smart-city environment along with its vulnerabilities and possible solutions to improve IoT security. An approach is made to study the various vulnerabilities available with the IoT devices deployed in the smart city setup, various motivation of an attacker and the analyse some of the recent attacks witnessed by IoT devices. A few possible solutions for mitigation are suggested in this paper. The findings of the paper can be implemented in any network of IoT devices.
