Internet of Things is the integration of a variety of technologies. The Internet of Things incorporates transparently and impeccably large number of assorted end systems, providing open access to selected data for digital services. Internet of things is a promising research in commerce, industry, and education applications. The abundance of sensors and actuators motivates sensing and actuate devices in communication scenarios thus enabling sharing of information in Internet of Things. Advances in sensor data collection technology and Radio Frequency Identification technology has led large number of smart devices connected to the Internet, continuously transmitting data over time.In the context of security, due to different communication overloads and standards conventional security services are not applicable on Internet of Things as a result of which the technological loopholes leads to the generation of malicious data, devices are compromised and so on. Hence a flexible mechanism can deal with the security threats in the dynamic environment of Internet of Things and continuous researches and new ideas needs to be regulated periodically for various upcoming challenges. This paper basically tries to cover up the security issues and challenges of Internet of Things along with a brief introduction on Internet of Things, its elements and components such as Radio Frequency Identification, Wireless Sensor Network and Near Field Communication.
