Wireless Sensor Network, Internet of Things, Intrusion Detection System


The development of network technology is growing rapidly; in the past, all devices were connected using cables as communication media. But since wireless technology was introduced, all of these devices began to adapt the wireless technology. Internet of Things is an example of a device that relies on wireless technology. The device uses wireless technology to communicate with each other. However, despite the many benefits gained by this wireless technology, there are great hidden danger. If this wireless technology is not properly protected by the network, it is vulnerable to being target of active network attacks such as Denial of Service (DoS). DoS attacks can paralyze targets on the network. In addition, this attack is also able to disable the IoT devices that are connected directly to it and thus cause the device to be unable to send vital information to users of IoT device. This research has successfully produced a sensor system that can detect active network attacks, and subsequently generate reports through the MQTT protocol.
