Abstract : This paper provides an approach to incorporate security when deploying Internet of Things (IoT) for Smart Buildings. In the area of wireless networks, there has occurred a dramatic increase in technological inventions in the past few decades, as also the security threats associated with it. Security threats are imminent because of the openness of the wireless communication. In TCP/IP protocol stack, threats can be seen at every layer which includes eavesdropping at physical layer, Denial of Service (DOS) at MAC layer, packet dropping, packet re-routing at Network layer, etc. The effect of these threats can vary from comparably minor issues like affecting the privacy of a user to major issues like killing of the user, especially in the medical field. Considering this, it is highly necessary to analyze the impacts of security threats on Smart Buildings. In this paper, we address the security threats that are likely to occur in the IoT network of Smart Buildings, prioritize the threats based on risk and then focus on the solutions to counteract two of the major threats.
