Concept of using Internet of Things

The IoT is a kind of network which usually used in different electronics items, software, sensors, and other connective devices to share or connect data. The use of IoT is very broad. These appliances which are embedded with the internet of things can be used at home, in different workplaces, in some government or non-government sectors, and so on. As stated by Mahmoud et al. (2015), the use of IoT becomes famous recently because of the accuracy and quickness of the network to perform a job. But along with these benefits, the use of IoT has faced some challenges related to its security which affects the reliability of using this network where high security is the basic criteria. Managing the safety and security of the wireless communicating areas is the main problem as there is a high chance of threats. As commented by Zhou et al. (2017), the use of IoT networks becomes very popular immediately after the introduction of this technology in different devices. It allows thousands of users to be a part of these networking systems by sharing data or connecting. This broad use of a huge number of accesses creates a threat in this networking system. 

Working process of the IoT networking system

In 1999, Kevin Ashton had proposed the model of the internet of things networking system. As mentioned by Singh & Singh (2015), the areas where this internet of things has been introduced are Wireless sensing Networks (WSN), Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), and mobile communication. The networking system has been introduced in all types of gadgets like mobile, tablet, PADs or laptops also. Along with these personal devices, the official gadgets also come under the use of the internet of things networking system. The networking system works based on providing a centralized system to share or communicate any information. As commented by Bugeja, Jacobsson & Davidsson (2016), the main concept of this network is based upon the cost-effective sensing system and wireless communication gadgets. According to the increased demands of IoT used gadgets in daily life for different purposes the modification has been done on the centralized information-sharing system so that the system does not face any difficulty while managing a huge number of subjects at a time.

The effect of IoT in different background

The use of the internet has increased for entertainment, shopping, gossiping, and many other purposes which have changed the virtue of life. Internet becomes a vital part of regular life. People are completely dependent to perform any job on the internet. As suggested by Sadeghi, Wachsmann & Waidner (2015), this becomes possible because of the revolutionary use of internet technology, to be very specific the use of IoT and this type of technology. The safety issues related to this networking system are becoming an issue in the present day because there is no such technology that can provide complete security by the use of this technology. Thus this is the main challenge of using this network to provide data sharing and connecting security by using the technology. Security is mainly required for government organizations where the shared information is very confidential.

The IoT has a lot of contribution to the healthcare system devices for diagnosing disease and provide advanced care by the use of different personal medical devices.
