A Novel lightweight DDOS Attack Detection Algorithm for Internet of Medical Things (IoMT)


Somasundaram and Mythili Thirugnanam


Vol. 19  No. 11  pp. 161-165


Internet of Things (IoT) and its applications are getting very popular nowadays. Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) is a major application under IoT that stores and transmits sensitive data over the network. The increasing number of security attacks such as DDoS attacks and Sybil attack is the major concern while using IoMT devices in the healthcare organization. In this paper, a novel lightweight DDoS attack prevention algorithm using device-level packet filtering is proposed and implemented in Contiki OS and Cooja simulator. Results obtained from the simulations show that the proposed filtering algorithm delivers less genuine packet drop ratio and less DDoS attack packet delivery ratio comparatively with the other existing algorithms in the IoMT environment.
