Security is a concern that was, is and will be valid at any given point, spanning time, spaces and generations. The pretty picture painted by the potential of Internet of Things is a fascinating one. We see a future where IoT has transformed our interaction with devices and our lives. Where networks and devices around us act intelligently and respond in way that humans do and possibly even better!
A smart city is expected to bring with it a better quality of life, sustainability of natural resources, efficient and reliable infrastructures and services. As of 2014, urban population accounted for 54% of the global population and continues to grow. The global urban population is expected to grow approximately 1.84% per year between 2015 and 2020. This adds to a multitude of teething issues to growing cities such as exploding traffic, poor public transport infrastructure and rampant exploitation of the limited natural energy resources in addition to the safety and security concerns of senior citizens. It poses definite challenges to livability and sustainability.
