The Internet of Things (IoT) commands an ever-growing population of devices across the nation and abroad. The development of privacy concerns and security goals have not kept pace with the demand for new advances in IoT. We will discuss how the IoT currently functions and why the security in this field is important as the technology grows into every device we touch. This paper will also reference current security implementations and how they expect to cover this growing consumer demand for instant data on many devices at once. With IoT devices using less power and smaller processors, there is major discussion in the computing world on what methods succeed. As standard encryption methods are simply too much for small, low power devices to handle; IoT specific security methods should be highlighted.
