The wide-scale diffusion of the Internet has been the driving force for this emerging trend, namely the use of such global communication infrastructure for enabling machines and smart objects to communicate, cooperate, and take decisions on real word situations. The scope of this issue is to facilitate the first approach to the IoT world. Different visions of this novel paradigm and device constraints are reported and enabling technologies reviewed. IoT Security, Safety, and Privacy risks are presented and analyzed to provide a comprehensive view of current issues due to the adoption of this technology. Furthermore, particular attention is paid to the Wireless Sensor Network, which represents the most used sensors network in many domains such as Smart Home, providing an overview about its main technical challenges, attacks, and related countermeasures.
