Security Agents for Information Retrieval in an IOT World

Meena Sachdeva


As we see that very large no of applications are spread for the distribution of information with networks. With the help of network there are number of problems arises which are already well known by the users of those information systems. Information can be distributed with networks include data consistency, security and network management-problems which are all removed by the new features of network traffic and growth of workloads. Information can also be distributed by multimedia communication. It includes send information by distributed systems in search of information. Now that the internet is accessible on such a big scale, there is an issue with looking for information: massive amounts of data in many formats are potentially available, but it is sometimes difficult. In this paper we describe the current status of automatic information retrieval, in an IoT and for security purposes also describe the software agents dedicated to security aspects.
