The acronym IoT stands for internet of things. The IoT ecosystem can be envisioned as a set of physical electronic devices embedded with intelligence, connected through a network, enabling them to collect and exchange data, and allowing these devices to be sensed and handled remotely between the physical and cyber worlds. The devices connected through the internet has been influencing all walks of our life ranging from individual, societal, educational, industrial, entrepreneurial, and related to governance as well. As we are connected and surrounded with a plethora of connected smart devices, it seems there is a great risk of security and privacy in several aspects, such as device authentication, data theft, device manipulation, data falsification, etc., to name a few. Hence, the current chapter has been undertaken to explore and comprehend the security and privacy related implications, opportunities, future directions, and challenges involved in implementing digital governance with IoT.
