Internet of Things(IoT) has been the buzzword for the past decade. Apart from its hype over opportunities, the security implications of IoT are unsolvable with current technologies. There is a wide range of security challenges in each layer of IoT conceptual model. We discuss the security challenges caused by the complex structures and integration of different techniques from diverse domains. By analysing attacks at the various layers we argue that the current standards are not enough to provide a secure framework for IoT. The economical and practical reasons make it impossible to puzzle out the various security challenges in IoT stack. From this perspective, we should think twice before connecting a device to the network of things. Copyright © 2017 by SCITEPRESS - Science and Technology Publications, Lda. All rights reserved.
