Abstract

This paper reviews the new paradigm of distributed computing, which is Fog Computing, presents its concept, characteristics and areas of activity. It reviews the literature on the problems of its implementation and analyzes its research challenges such as: security issues; operational issues and their standardization. We realize that many questions need to be researched in academia so that their implementation is a reality, but it became clear that their adherence is inevitable for the internet of the future.
