Internet of Things (IoT) expose various vulnerabilities at different levels. One such exploitable vulnerability is Denial of Service (DoS). In this paper, we showcase our preliminary efforts towards study of various forms of DoS and how it can be exploited in different protocols of IoT. We propose our initial attack and defense framework for IoT and that can perform various forms of DoS on IP and Bluetooth. We show the initial results of DoS vulnerabilities such as Resource Exhaustion and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) Packet Injection. In order to understand how resilient is IoT for DoS, we propose a new metric to measure the Resilience against DoS in IoT. We have conducted a real time experimentation with IoT devices in our security IoT testbed. The experiments conducted are for DoS, Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) by setting up Mirai and Permanent Denial of Service (PDoS) using BrickerBot on various …
