Fog Approach in Internet of Things : A Review

Authors(3) :-Rukhsana Thaker, Yusera Farooq Khan, Shafqat Mughal

Internet of Things (IoT) connects billions of physical objects to collect and exchange data for various applications. IoT has many unsupported features such as geographic features, location, latency etc that are critical for various IoT application. To support these features fog computing is added to IoT. This review paper discusses the difference between cloud and fog and why fog is used over cloud for IoT. This paper discusses the architecture and features of fog computing for IoT applications. Security and privacy issues of fog related to various applications are also discussed.
