We have been witnessing a formation of a new technological marvel: Internet of Things. The Internet of Things (IoT) is driven by an expansion of the Internet through the inclusion of physical objects combined with an ability to provide smarter services to the environment as more data becomes available. This construction is able to combine in a particular operational entity all the bits and pieces of the world around us. This concept has been able to be integrated into various fields which includes the health care sector, transportation sectors, smart cities and various areas of human endeavor to make life a better and easy place for mankind. Hence, it is important to understand how to build IoT applications that are dependable and deliver what they are need to deliver. This paper explores dependability issues in Internet of Things applications by analyzing what is currently in the literature and conceptualizing the requirements of dependability in IoT application irrespective of their sizes and domain application and finally argues an importance why the issues of dependability needs to be explore and addressed in IoT applications
