In this chapter, the problem of detection and prevention systems for Internet of Things attacks is discussed. We start with the term Internet of Things (IoT) that defines the use of intelligently connected devices and systems for data collection via embedded sensors and actuators in physical devices. IoT is omnipresent today and is expected to expand globally in the years ahead. This type of progress will provide services that improve the quality of human life and the productivity of enterprises, while creating the possibility for the so-called “Connected Life.” The goal is to achieve protection against intruders who break into IoT systems to obtain certain sensitive data, gain control, or commit any kind of abuse. Reliability, integrity, and availability represent three different aspects in the field of security that should be achieved in systems such as the Internet of Things. In this work, we present three major areas that can help to mitigate the security risks in IoT systems. Also—two methods for intrusion detection are elaborated—signature-based and anomaly-based models. In the last section of this chapter, we present a real-world example that has already been implemented in reality (Intrusion detection system based on Snort at eggs/poultry farm).
