Abstract

The Smart city is a modern day technological concept which uses sensors, advanced communication technologies and data analysis for maximizing operational efficiency of services offered by the government to its citizens. Mobile devices are the backbone of the smart cities. These mobile devices rely heavily on clouds or fog computing to compensate their low processing capabilities. This brings new challenges to security and privacy of the users of mobile devices. In this paper we focused on the idea of utilizing fog computing properties like caching, cooperating between themselves, playing as a broker between users and cloud. We presented three novel approaches for satisfying the required privacy of the mobile devices in smart cities using fog computing. This paper is the preliminary stage of our work in progress. In future we will present this research in a comprehensive manner.
