With the advent of new technologies, many computational devices with sensing and networking power are connected with each other. These devices sense the data from the environment, perform some computation on it, and then either store or transmit the data to some other device having similar capabilities. With this process of communication, there arise several security and trust concerns, which are very critical to handle. Such security and trust concerns can be potential threats to the IoT ecosystem and they need to be handled with the latest architecture, framework, and technology. This paper attempts to highlight some major threats of security and trust in IoT and how existing architecture deals with them.
