Abstract

In the last few years, the cloud computing paradigm experienced a considerable growth, making it the de-facto technology fuelling almost all major online services. At the same time, the concept of Internet of Things has started to gain mainstream traction with the promise to usher a new era of pervasive sensing using a weave of numerous inter-connected IoT devices. Such IoT devices can generate an enourmous amount of data which becomes increasingly difficult to process using the limited computational and storage capabilities of these devices. To tackle this problem, a notion of a novel technology called Cloud of Things is emerging.. However, to harness the full potential of this new paradigm, different security and privacy issues need to be properly analysed. The first step for carrying out such an analysis is to define a well-constructed threat model. In this chapter, we present a comprehensive threat model which is then utilised to create a first-ever threat taxonomy for Cloud of Things. This taxonomy outlines different security and privacy threats faced by this nascent technology and can be used as the basis for further research on security and privacy in Cloud of Things
