Abstract

A Smart city implements the latest IoT and information and communication technologies (ICT) to improve the quality of urban city administrations, decrease expenditures, asset management and interconnect citizens of a Smart city. Smart cities offer numerous advantages like improved energy productivity, management, healthcare facilities, efficient transport systems, proper waste and water management, and individual security. Nonetheless, this reliance on ICT and IoT technologies makes a Smart city prone to digital cyber assaults. These technologies are vulnerable to many security issues like Information theft, Eaves-dropping attack, Denial of service, Communication delays, Data manipulation, IoT security attacks, Communication interception, Jamming, Sensor failure, insecure API, and Remote exploitation. This research study intends to address opinions on cybersecurity technologies, vulnerabilities, and cybercrime awareness based on the systematic literature review 'PRISMA Model' as our research method and help researchers and practitioners to look for innovative Smart City solutions. Our research endeavors to momentarily depict the central ideas of digital security and protection issues related to Smart city areas and uncover digital cyber-Attacks that focus on Smart city communities in the literature. In brief, the focus of this research is to explore and review the aspects of Smart city cybersecurity issues, Smart city vulnerabilities related to information security, and provide a comprehensive research framework that will help the researchers and practitioners explore this area of research.
