The Internet of Things (IoT) describes a communication network that enables different devices to connect and exchange data over the Internet. It enables machine-to-machine communication and coordination without human intervention. Its application has marked the beginning of a new era with everything smart, such as smart houses, smart cities, smart buildings, smart agriculture, and more. However, the security and privacy issues related to the IoT are crucial challenges. This study presents a descriptive analysis of the layered architecture of the IoT along with techniques on how security threats can be overcome by existing proposed methods. Furthermore, based on the literature review, a more secure layered architecture has been suggested that can easily be extended to improve security and privacy issues.
