System Infringement Challenges in Smart Cities

Vaidehi Jain, Vivek Gahlot, Saloni Swami, Shivangi Sharma, Manish Dubey


We can increase the urban service use, improve sustainability and minimize environmental harm so that the idea of green infrastructure aims to improve the living standard of the citizens. Cybersecurity is the key issue facing smart cities. To store, process and transmit data we can use data protection, as well as the software infrastructure, all topics covered by cybersecurity. Internet of things (IoT) and internet of everything (IoE) are used by smart cities to power their services and apps. The aim is to find a viable solution. The remaining portions of this document are structured as follows: The workings and elements of the smart city once it is put into place will be covered in detail in the second section. The final segment will discuss deep learning-based cybersecurity issues in smart cities. The application of this pattern in smart city-based cybersecurity is illustrated. We then review the literature on threats to user privacy and cybersecurity concerns in smart cities. Technically speaking, a smart city is an area where governance organizations, public organizations, and private organization work together to develop long-term computerized platforms that impose the use of contemporary technologies such as electronic devices, networks, and methods for intelligent decision-making, as well as mobile cloud computing. The biggest issues facing the world today, such as climate change, resource scarcity, urbanization, and rapid population expansion, are primarily addressed by smart cities.
