IoT, DoS,, DDoS,, Vulnerability,, Review


Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm became particularly popular in the last couple of years in such a way that the devices are present in almost every home across the globe. Using cheap components one can connect any device to the internet and enable information collecting from the environment, making everyday life a lot easier. Even though it does bring multiple advantages to the table, at the same time it brings certain challenges and vulnerabilities that need to be addressed. In this paper we focus on Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) and Denial of Service (DoS) attacks and we provide a review of the current architecture of Internet of Things which is prone to these.
