Internet of things (IoT), it is one of the most promising technology which is connecting billions of devices. As the connection among devices is increasing rapidly, data collection and data transmission also increasing which is leading to privacy and security issues. In this paper, we have discussed about IoT characteristics, security issues and security threats also proposed an idea as how we can classify the data using machine learning technique and how we can secure transmission using Elliptic curve cryptography.
