Nowadays, fog computing is emerged for providing computational power closer to the users. Fog computing brings real-time processing, low-latency, geo-distributed and etc. Although, fog computing do not come to compete cloud computing, it comes to collaborate. Recently, Fog-To-Cloud (F2C) continuum system is introduced to provide hierarchical computing system and facilitates fog-cloud collaboration. This F2C continuum system might encounter security issues and challenges due to their hierarchical and distributed nature. In this paper, we analyze attacks in different layer of F2C system and identify most potential security requirements and challenges for the F2C continuum system. Finally, we introduce the most remarkable efforts and trends for bringing secure F2C system
