    The Internet has gone from an Internet of people to an Internet of Things (IoT). This has brought forth strong levels of complexity in handling interoperability that involves the integrating of wireless sensor networks (WSNs) into IoT. This book offers insights into the evolution, usage, challenges, and proposed countermeasures associated with the integration.

    Focusing on the integration of WSNs into IoT and shedding further light on the subtleties of such integration, this book aims to highlight the encountered problems and provide suitable solutions. It throws light on the various types of threats that can attack both WSNs and IoT along with the recent approaches to counter them.

    This book is designed to be the first choice of reference at research and development centers, academic institutions, university libraries, and any institution interested in the integration of WSNs into IoT. Undergraduate and postgraduate students, Ph.D. scholars, industry technologists, young entrepreneurs, and researchers working in the field of security and privacy in IoT are the primary audience of this book.
