Abstract

Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) and Internet of Things (IoT) together have the potential to change the whole world into a smart planet. IoT technology has been a huge boon for a clean, green, and sustainable environment. This technology benefits numerous industries by improving connectivity and reducing energy wastage. IoT has the potential to make our environment more sustainable and help us to reduce pollution all across the globe. But due to limited resources in both these networks, it is very challenging to form a complete secure system. This survey paper examines the various security requirements and attacks possible in WSN and IoT. The paper surveys existing approaches like blockchain, fog/edge computing and machine learning to ensure security of IoT systems. The paper also evaluates the performance of common machine learning algorithms using IoT datasets.
