The vast demand for diverse applications raises new networking challenges, which have encouraged the development of a new paradigm of Internet of Things (IoT), e.g., LoRa. LoRa is a proprietary spread spectrum modulation technique, which provides a solution for long-range and ultra-low power-consumption transmission. Due to promising prospects of LoRa, significant effort has been made on this compelling technology since its emergence. In this paper, we provide a comprehensive survey of LoRa

Then, we review studies enhancing the performance of LoRa networks in communication. Afterward, we analyze the security vulnerabilities and countermeasures. Finally, we survey the various LoRa-enabled applications. We also present comparisons of existing methods, together with insightful observations and inspiring future research directions.
