Federated learning holds great promise in learning from fragmented sensitive data and has revolutionized how machine learning models are trained. This article provides a systematic overview and detailed taxonomy of federated learning. We investigate the existing security challenges in federated learning and provide a comprehensive overview of established defense techniques for data poisoning, inference attacks, and model poisoning attacks. The work also presents an overview of current training

Finally, we discuss the remaining challenges in managing federated learning training and suggest focused research directions to address the open questions. Potential candidate areas for federated learning, including IoT ecosystem, healthcare applications, are discussed with a particular focus on banking and financial domains.
