Fog computing is a natural extension to cloud computing. It extends the Cloud platform by providing computing resources on the edges of a network. Fog Computing is acting as the intermediate layer for securing the data which is stored inside the cloud. By the year 2025, it is estimated that 75.4 billion IoT devices will be connected to Internet. So in the future this gives challenge to handle huge amount of data and to provide the security for the Data. 1. Internet of Things (IoT) combines information and computing processes to control very large collections of different objects. The IoT devices will produce very large volume of data. It is very difficult to manage these data with traditional system and cloud systems. 2. Fog computing is designed to overcome the limitations of cloud computing. This paper analyses the current developments in the field of fog computing, addresses security issues in fog computing, and based on the observations propose future directions for research.

Keywords: Cloud computing, Edge computing, Fog computing, Internet of Things (IoT).
