In near future, the number of IoT devices connected to internet will increase because of more applications arising in Internet of Things (IOT). Adding security in such devices is very challenging due to its resource constrained and nature of these devices with respect to battery and processing power. That is why he wormhole attack, sinkhole attack, hello flooding attack, Cybil and clone ID attack all such types of attacks take place in IoT. Black hole attack which is recently discovered can be launched against any protocol. Also its ability to be effective in case of encrypted traffic makes these attacks very severe and challenging.
Likewise Wormhole attack can cause failure of location dependent protocol, which may enter wrong route/topology information misleading the purpose of routing algorithm
A method to identify the black hole attack taking place at routing layer of IOT and Intrusion Detection system for it is proposed in this paper.
