The Internet of Things (IoT) opens opportunities for handheld devices, home appliances, and software to share and communicate information on the Internet. Advances in the areas of embedded systems, computing, and networking are leading to an infrastructure composed of millions of heterogeneous devices. These devices will not simply convey information but process it in transit, connect peer to peer, and form advanced collaborations. This “Internet of Things (IoT)” infrastructure will be strongly integrated with the environment. This paper focuses on researching on the architecture and technology of Internet of Things. Moreover, the applications of Internet of Things are interpreted in this paper. We begin with general information security background of IoT and continue on with information security related challenges that IoT will encountered. Finally, we will also point out research directions that could be the future work for the solutions to the security challenges that IoT encounters. The future is Internet of Things, which will transform the real world objects into intelligent virtual objects.
