Abstract: Internet of Things (IoT) is a network spread globally and accommodates maximum things under it. All these things are connected globally using IPv6 protocol which satisfies the need of connecting maximum devices by supporting 2^128 addresses. Because of heavy-weight nature of IPv6 protocol, a compressed version of it known as IPv6 Low Power Personal Area Network (6LoWPAN) protocol is used for a resource-constrained network that communicates over low power and lossy links. In IoT, devices are resource-constrained in terms of low battery power, less processing power, less transceiver power, etc. Also these devices are directly connected to insecure internet hence it is very challenging to maintain security in IoT network. In this paper, we have discussed various attacks on 6LoWPAN and RPL network along with countermeasures to reduce the attacks. DoS attack is one of the severe attacks in IoT which has various patterns of execution. Out of various attacks we have designed Intrusion Detection System (IDS) for Denial of Service (DOS) attack detection using Contiki OS and Cooja simulator.
