Privacy and the IoT: Navigating Policy Issues - Opening Remarks of FTC Chairwoman Edith Ramirez[10], “Today, I would like to focus on three key challenges that, in my view, the IoT poses to consumer privacy: (1) ubiquitous data collection; (2) the potential for unexpected uses of consumer data that could have adverse consequences; and (3) heightened security risks. These risks to privacy and security undermine consumer trust. And that trust is as important to the widespread consumer adoption of new IoT products and services as a network connection is to the functionality of an IoT device. I believe there are three key steps that companies should take to enhance consumer privacy and security and thereby build consumer trust in IoT devices: (1) adopting “security by design”; (2) engaging in data minimization; and (3) increasing transparency and providing consumers with notice and choice for unexpected data uses. I believe these steps will be key to successful IoT business models and to the protection of consumer information.” This project wants to achieve just the same goal as intended in both of the base papers combined The following are the better, simple features that can make this project as a benchmarking step in the implementation of the network security solutions for a Smart City:- 3.1 Privacy Preserving mechanism - U. I. D.: A user identification (UID) is a unique positive integer acting as a unique key randomly generated and then assigned by the
