Nowadays, Internet of Things (IoT) plays a crucial part in the area of Information Technology (IT). At present, providing security to information has become one of the difficult tasks. Recently, the IoT and the devices connected on it have accepted a sizeable attention towards the research. The IoT is contemplated as the future of the Internet. IoT and its connected devices will have a considerable role and will change the style of living, standard of living, as well as the models of business in future. The applications of IoT in various fields are anticipated to increase gradually in the up-coming years. Various types of threats such as malicious based attack, network based attack and network abuse have been emerged and identified in the IoT based on virus, Phishing, Spam and the user abuse. It has been noted that these mechanisms are causing various level of complication and preferment as there is advances in IoT based devices and its technology. This paper focuses on various challenges, threats and vulnerabilities faced by cyber security especially in the field of IoT and its latest technologies. It also focuses on the techniques of security, methods and the recent trends which are changing the face of IoT based security. This paper also focuses on an attempt to classify various types of threats, besides analyzing and characterizing the intruders and attacks facing towards the IoT devices and its services.
