In a typical consumer electronics generation, diverse forms of attacks exist, e.g., system security, information security, information privacy, system trustworthiness, hardware IP protection, information copyright protection. Each of the attacks have their own threats and serve different purposes. The objective of this chapter is to differentiate each of these attacks in the context of internet of things (IoT). IoT is a very hot, trending topic of research, where different devices, sensors, and computers are connected to a network, collect data, and process for different purposes. A network of devices and sensors connected to the cloud can complete many unimaginable tasks, and without the existence of cloud, almost all task would have been very difficult to achieve and complete. Since, most connectivity occurs in cloud, there is always a probability of security and privacy threats. Because all types of the different devices are connected to the internet, attackers pose a huge threat to the system. For example, if any electronic system that is responsible for home care, healthcare, running an entire city, etc., are attacked, then the consequence of this threat will be a major catastrophe.
