Even though concepts related to smart cities are well established and spread, those concepts are still very thin when related to Information Security. This paper will present some studies on smart cities, and will show that those studies are based on three macro concepts, system interoperability, applications and frameworks/platforms. Solutions and tools focusing on information security are still far from the common and typical scenario of urban systems. Based on that assumption, the authors propose a solution, based on a self-contained information security model, that aims to relate several items from urban systems and solutions for problems like, privacy and information integrity.
