IoT Security Challenges for Smart Cities

Smart cities are among the most exciting advancements in the Internet of Things. They also involve the most complexity– combining IoT devices, networks and city assets that include schools, libraries, transportation systems, hospitals, power plants, water supply networks, waste management, law enforcement, and other community services. The goal of improving community services and residents lives could come to a halt due to security flaws and the largest attack surface possible. Sensors in most equipment are hackable and can be fed fake data – causing signal failures that could cause serious actions that scramble traffic systems, stop subway trains or allow contaminants into the local water supply. Securing the elements of a smart city from sensors, equipment, control facilities, data and the Cloud must be ensured before deploying any portion of the value chain.
