Garv Pundir*

ABSTRACT

During the recent past, IoT has emerged as a path- breaking technology which is acquiring a vast usage across the world. The study highlights the significance of IoT networks to industriesincluding manufacturing, healthcare, logistics, farming and infrastructure. It discusses the IoT architecture and the technologies used by the IoT to function. However, the IoT is quite prone to privacy and security threats and vulnerabilities. The study discussesthe definition ofsecurity with respect to IoT along with its associated challenges. The weaknesses and potential threats posed by these issues need to be addressed on priority. The study covers appropriate solutions such as Centralised Monitoring System and Software Defined Networking tools to curb these threats along with formal anticipation of threats to network weaknesses. These techniques will help to protect privacy and prevent potential damage. The study discusses the impact of these solutions in the effective utilisation of the IoT networks. The entire study has been conducted while keeping in mind the growing popularity and the projected growth in the usage of IoT networks in times to come.
