A Secure Framework for IoT-based devices: SRF-IoT

The rapid development of Internet of Things (IoT) will offer great benefits for both individuals and companies. However, as smart devices are widely deployed, they become attractive to hackers. Some examples are recent attacks of IoT malware such as Mozi, Mirai and its variants. Therefore, new solutions should be developed to protect the power-constrained devices.

In this work, a new Secure Framework for IoT-based devices (SRF-IoT) is proposed. We study the impact of the combination of rank and blackhole attacks in RPL networks. RPL is a routing protocol designed specifically for smart devices. Although many works study the security of RPL, it is still vulnerable to various attacks. SRF-IoT framework contains a trust-based mechanism that detects and isolates malicious attackers with the help of an external Intrusion Detection System (IDS). Evaluation is based on simulations on a new framework called Whitefield framework that combines both Contiki-NG OS and NS-3 simulator. Results show that SRF-IoT improved network performance when the network is under attack.
