With the ongoing revolution in the Internet of Things (IoT) and cloud computing has made the potential of every stack holder that is connected through the Internet, to exchange and transfer data. Various users perceive this connection and interaction with devices as very helpful and serviceable in their daily life. However, an improperly configured network system is a soft target to security threats, therefore there is a dire need for a security embedded framework for IoT and cloud communication models is the latest research area. In this paper, different IoT and cloud computing frameworks are discussed in detail and describes the importance of the daily life of people. The main focus is to design the Cloud-IoT integration that is used to implement IoT and Cloud Framework for M2M communication, also building a relationship between different devices to connect through a cloud and also find different security methods to secure those devices. Extensive papers finding and results showed different ways they have been introduced to manipulate M2M in the digital field of health care and the virtual world. While focusing on the methodology used in M2M it is also imperative to concentrate on security levels from different inside and outside attacks on IoT and cloud ecosystem. There is a need to create a strong and secure connection between all of our IoT devices with a cloud so that there should be a fixed and safe connection between cloud environments concerning M2M connection between all wired and wireless devices. Meanwhile in contemplation of security mode also conducive to maintain M2M connection between IoT devices and Cloud and in which areas these methodologies have been implemented.
