Cyberattacks on the power grid serve as a reminder that while the smart Internet of Things (IoT) can help us control our lightbulbs, it also runs the risk of putting us in the dark if attacked. Many works of literature have recently attempted to address the issues surrounding IoT security, but few of them tackle the serious dangers that the development of quantum computing poses to IoT. Lattice-based encryption, a likely contender for the next post-quantum cryptography standard, benefits from strong security guarantees and great efficiency, making it well-suited for IoT applications. In this article, we list the benefits of lattice-based cryptography and the most recent developments in IoT device implementations.

The Internet of Things (IOT) is a new technology that is anticipated to improve human lives. According to Cisco research, by 2020, there will be a vast array of IOT devices that will span every industry, including transportation, healthcare, and smart gadgets for every aspect of daily life. IOTs are improving user experience by making smart devices smarter and their services of high quality. The devices' unfettered access to the whole network makes the IOT's security issues more susceptible. The research paper will contribute to the presentation of a compiled report on the security issues with IOTs and the cryptographic techniques utilised to address them.

Keywords: Constrained devices, Digital signatures, Encryption, Lattice-based cryptography, Post-quantum cryptography.
