Internet of Things (IOT) is widely distributed network of things in which all the information is sent to the internet with the help of sensing devices and Radio Frequency IDentification (RFID) tagging system. As IOT does not need any human to machine interaction, it seems to be one of the largest waves of revolution as per the research going on, hence security is needed. But the rapid development of IOT has evolved with the challenges in terms of security of things. This paper is mainly focusing on the concept of IOT, architecture and security issues with suggested countermeasure and suggested further areas of research needed.
