The Internet of Things (IOT) is a communication network in which physical objects are connected to each other or to larger systems. It is contemplated that the objects (Unique Identifier) can be marked with a single key to work together over the internet network or that each smaller piece may unite to form a larger system. If IOT needs to be elucidated; it is the ability of objects in everyday use to receive and send and store the data over the internet network. Objects store a large part of the available data in the so-called cloud. Nowadays the exposure of cloud Technologies to attack has rendered these as an insecure field, bringing security problems alongwith it in the world of IOT. Mechanisms such as administrative security controls, account control, malicious insiders, privacy, data sorting alongwith sensitive data access are part of insecure space in this region. The possible security weaknesses of this large data set consistute the weak area of cyberspace. Correspondingly, the generated solutions such as Cryptography, Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) and APIs are being studied to improve the virtualization and legal support environment. While taking the risks into consideration, the hesitations about the security of the data are not eliminated.
