The evolution in computing strategies has shown wonders in reducing the reachability issue among different end devices. After centralized approaches, decentralized approaches started to take action, but with the latency in data pre-processing, computing very simple requests was the same as for the larger computations. Now it's time to have a simple decentralized environment called edge that is created very near to the end device. This makes edge location friendly and time friendly to different kinds of devices like smart, sensor, grid, etc. In this chapter, some of the serious and non-discussed security issues and privacy issues available on edge are explained neatly, and for a few of the problems, some solutions are also recommended. At last, a separate case study of edge computing challenges in healthcare is also explored, and solutions to those issues concerning that domain are shown.
