As the expansion of nano-devices, smartphones, 5G, tiny sensors, and distributed networks evolve, the IoT is combining the “factual and virtual” anywhere and anytime. Subsequently, it is attracting the attention of both “maker and hacker.” However, interconnecting many “things” also means the possibility of interconnecting many diversified threats and attacks. For example, a malware virus can easily propagate through the IoT at an unprecedented rate. In the four design aspects of the smart IOT, there may be various threats and attacks; they are:

  1. (a)

    Data perception and collection: In this aspect, typical attacks include data leakage, sovereignty, breach, and authentication.

  2. (b)

    Data storage: The following attacks may occur – denial-of-service attacks (attacks on availability), access control attacks, integrity attacks, impersonation, modification of sensitive data, and so on.

  3. (c)

    Data processing: In this aspect, there may exist computational attacks that aim to generate...
