Abstract: Today in many fields, work is being carried out without human interventions. In place of humans, devices like sensors, cameras, wireless networks, etc. are installed in different locations and they collect the information throughout day and night and transmit the information at regular interval of time to their control rooms where the information is processed and analysed for predicting about special unusual incidents to be taken place in near future. Such collection of sensor devices makes internet of things (IoT) network possible. Since these devices are remain unattended and uncovered therefore there are many issues regarding their nature and their working. The focus of this paper is on the IoT and their security and privacyissues by inserting a separate layer which employs the message authentication and server authentication in distributed environment, in the IoTarchitecture to enhance the security and privacy of IoT. This paper also elaborates the techniques, architecture and the position of the security and privacy layer as a sandwich layer in the architecture of IoT.
