Abstract

With the continued improvement and innovation, technology has become an integral part of our daily lives. The rapid adoption of technology and its affordability has given rise to the Internet-of-Things (IoT). IoT is an interconnected network of devices that are able to communicate and share information seamlessly. IoT encompasses a gamut of heterogeneous devices ranging from a small sensor to large industrial machines. One such domain of IoT that has seen a significant growth in the recent few years is that of the wearable devices. While the privacy issues for medical devices has been well-researched and documented in the literature, the threats to privacy arising from the use of consumer wearable devices have received very little attention from the research community. This paper presents a survey of the literature to understand the various privacy challenges, mitigation strategies, and future research directions as a result of the widespread adoption of wearable devices.
