ABSTRACT
Advancements in information and communication technologies have
ought various changes to human civilization. A smart city is a relatively new concept that is basically an u
an area with various types of ICT infrastructure, especially IoT or Internet of Things. A diverse range of interconnected devices is used to collect and exchange data over a network facility that connects a smart city. The four key components of a smart city are smart grids, smart vehicles, BAS or Building Automation Systems, and UAVs or Unnamed Aerial Vehicles. All these are used to enable IoT in a smart city environment. Cloud computing platform and sensors are essential for IoT based smart city infrastructure. IoT has several advantages and it is considered to be the future of u
anization. However, there are various security and privacy challenges related to smart city and IoT. The increasing number of criminal misuses and adversarial threats have made it more challenging. In this report, the smart city infrastructure and IoT technology will be explored in depth to understand the security and privacy challenges and how to take some preventive and co
ective controls to cope with the increasing risks. As a smart city infrastructure consists of heterogeneous systems exchanging data autonomously with each other and sometimes without any human intervention, so it is very challenging to impose security controls on such an environment. At the same time, it allows machine and people to communicate. Smart devices and smart cities are targets for hackers as they can collect a huge volume of personal and financial information about individuals and their lives. Such data can be exploited to trigger fatal incidents and attacks at a larger scale. So, security and privacy are primary challenges for implementing and developing smart cities. There are various examples of smart cities in real life. Some of those are Smart Dublin, Manchester, Santa Cruz and many more. Building secure smart cities should be responsibilities of the people, government, and technology to enforce security and privacy controls. Only technology is not enough to deal with the increasing future challenges of smart cities.

Introduction
IoT or the Internet of Things applications are getting popular worldwide and enabling the information and communication technology based initiatives like Smart Cities or IoT Smart Cities. The IoT based infrastructure implemented over an u
an city uses various sensory devices to collect, and monitor data remotely from a wide range of heterogeneous devices. Then it allows to manage and control the devices autonomously based on various insights processed from those data. The actionable insights are produced from high volume and high speed real data. Compared to the general concept of a city, an IoT Smart City differs by its adoption of various emerging and cutting edge information and communication technologies and the integration of these technologies with various information resources used in the city (Ramesh, Singh, & Chetry).
An u
an IoT Smart City must have some components like smart technology, smart services, smart industry, smart lives of the inhabitants and smart management. Sensor based devices like RFID devices, IR devices etc. are installed on various physical equipment and devices used in an smart city, for example, wireless sensory network based smart grid, smart household appliances used, smart vehicles and so on. The sensor embedded devices are connected to an internal network or to the Internet for seamless integration and data communication. It helps in intelligent monitoring, tracking, location tracking, and recognition of patterns and so on. In an IoT smart city, the integration of the different components of its infrastructure is very important as it facilitates M2M or machine to machine communication. Being interconnected, intelligent and instrumented, are the three important features to be a smart city. In the past few years, there is an explosive growth of IoT and smart city development. One of the most important reason behind that is the explosive growth of population in u
an cities and the limitations on resources. The population balloons are important for generating revenue and to improve the economy of a city. However, the influx of the new inhabitants and visitors create burdens on the resources of the city. Now, as the IoT applications are being an integral part of these smart cities, it helps in managing the resources and optimizing the resources like electricity, water and so on. Actually, IoT applications for smart cities may range from solutions for environmental issues to city governance and management issues like traffic control. Hence, smart city has become a technology based solution to sustain the economic growth of a city and to alleviate the burdens on its resources (Kim, Ramos, & Mohammed, 2017).
Emerging technologies like wireless sensor networks, cloud computing and big data management play important role behind the implementation of a smart city infrastructure. Sensors are important for managing, monitoring and running a smart city infrastructure properly. There are various WSN based framework available for the implementation of smart cities. One of such framework is, called as SWIFT or the Smart WSN-based Infrastructural Framework for smart Transactions. It offers a ubiquitous platform for the smart objects of a smart city. The objects can seamlessly communicate with each other and collect data from the environment. Cloud computing offers a suitable platform to implement such a platform. The distributed architecture of cloud computing allows to scale up or down the required ICT infrastructure quickly and balance the load (Ramesh et al.). It helps to make the platform agile and high-performing. The streams of real time data must be captured in order to monitor and manage a smart city infrastructure. The key challenges behind a smart city infrastructure and how it can be solved using WSN and other technologies have been discussed in details in the following sections of the report.
Now, the IoT applications developed and used for smart cities have created various issues. One of the prominent issue is related to the information security and privacy of cyberspace. Hence, the aim of the report is to explore the technologies behind developing a smart city, the component of a smart city infrastructure, the advantages and disadvantages of smart city, and to find an efficient, reliable and scalable solution to the problem of information security and privacy in a smart city.
The report also contains information about the research methodology used for the project and why it was chosen for the project. An extensive literature review has been ca
ied out for this project on researching about IoT smart cities (Kim et al., 2017).
The scope of the project is limited within ca
ying out a research on IoT Smart City and find out the key challenges. Then based on the existing academic and industrial work, find out how these challenges have been addressed or can be addressed. Development or implementation of any IoT smart city application is out of the scope of the project.
IoT Smart City
While starting the research on IoT smart cities, the first question to answer is what it takes to make a smart city. Broadly, it can be said that a smart city is such an u
an city that is sustainable environmentally and offers a very comfortable living to the citizens. It also helps the government to manage the city efficiently with the help of various information and communication technologies (Ramesh et al.). Basically, it is an open platform developed on wireless sensor networks that allows to integrate other technologies with the city infrastructure efficiently. Even though the implementation of a smart city infrastructure depends on the requirements of individual cities and no solution is suitable for all. But, the primary components of a smart city are same for all. The components are described below.
Use of Wireless Sensor Technology
It needs an efficient and ubiquitous platform for the citizens and the government of a smart city to interact and communicate. It also allows to monitor different activities and events happening in a city. Wireless sensor networks are used to develop and implement such a platform that allows collection of data and sharing information to different stakeholders like city managers, and citizens. Such a platform can be implemented using cloud computing technologies and common data warehouses can be used to collect, store, manage and process the data collected by a WSN (Ramesh et al.).
Information and Communication Technology Infrastructure
Information and communication technologies are used to manage and improve various functions of a smart city, provide communication flows across different components of a city and to help in intelligent and well informed decision making processes. Various ICT managers work together and actively participate in a smart city management process to develop and implement an efficient feedback system. It is required to improve the interactions and collaborations between various internal and external stakeholders of a smart city (Jin, Gu
i, Marusic, & Palaniswami, 2014).
Remote Control Network
It is basically an integrated network to control the smart objects being used in a smart city infrastructure. However, it is mainly used by the government and municipalities as a control network and to monitor various data transmission operations being executed in a smart city. Municipalities and internet service providers work together to implement such a remote control network for a city. It also helps to monitor the consumptions of resources, occu
ence of incidents across a city. Usually, all data are stored and processed by the municipality of a city. Alert devices are connected to such a remote control network. It helps to manage incidents like intrusion, over-consumption of resources, and so on quickly and without human intervention. Hence, remote control network allows in better incident management and response in a smart city (Ramesh et al.).
Service Network
A remote control network is also connected to one or more service networks in a smart city. A service network must provide a particular service to a smart city management and maintenance processes. Some examples of service networks are, waste management network, supply network, rainwater harvesting network and so on (Jin et al., 2014).
Smart Mobility
Open public data must be available publicly. It is required for various analysis processes, to maintain transparency and must be distributed among various stakeholders at a large scale to ensure mobility in a smart city. Sharing of such information is also important to ensure better and optimized usage of resources. Overall, it is required to improve the quality of life of the citizens and to accelerate the growth and prosperity of a smart city (Ramesh et al.).
Examples of Smart Cities across the Globe
A tangible example of a smart city is the Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. This is the second largest city and has a successful implementation smart city infrastructure. The goal behind the implementation of smart city infrastructure in this city was to collect data and making decisions for emergencies and for managing large events, and to mitigate various issues faced by the dwellers of the city. Another constraint on the project was to use the project budget efficiently and effectively (Ramesh et al.).
