However, the significant challenges were observed with the rise of smart cities. A comprehensive review is conducted on the study of different approaches used for mitigation of the crime scenarios in smart cities in perspective of hacker’s view on hashing and thereby protecting the integrity of the data in heterogeneous devices on a network of smart city. This paper also proposes the ICT architecture of a smart city which is encompassed with numerous security layers in onion model to integrate secure framework for future smart city, for better city living and governance, based on cloud computing IoT and distributed computing in accordance with salted hash value added as a prefix and postfix in a generated password.
