A Study on Cyber Attack in Internet of Things

Dr. S. Banumathi, R. Abisha


The Internet of Things (IoT) describes a world where just about anything is an Internet enabled device. IoT is comprised of smart physical objects such as vehicles and buildings or embedded devices such as refrigerators, toasters and routers. These devices feature sensors and an IP address for Internet connectivity, enabling these objects to collect and exchange data while allowing users the ability to automate or control their devices .As the deployment of Internet of Things (IoT) is experiencing an exponential growth, it is no surprise that many cyber-attacks in IoT. The attacker initially exploits some vulnerable IoT technology as a first step towards compromising a critical system that is connected, in some way, with the IoT.
