Mitigating the Security Risks of IoT Devices using IPv6

Praveen Misra | Dr. Rajeev Yadav

Abstract: Numerous IoT devices are now present in many areas of our living environment as a result of the development of the Internet of Things (IoT) technology, which has many positive effects on our lives. The vast majority of IoT devices, however, were widely deployed without adding security by design at the time of development in order to respond to the IoT market?s quick changes. As a result, IoT devices have been the target of hostile attackers who have also compromised IoT devices without security safeguards, leading to several security incidents. In particular, a hacker can take control of an IoT device with insufficient security protections, like the Mirai Botnet. Consequently, in order to increase the security of the IoT service environment, this study suggests a plan to reduce security threats and vulnerabilities in IoT devices. The addressless IoT server concept, which is proposed in this paper, enables users to leverage a significant portion of the IPv6 address space to safeguard IoT server security. An IPv6 prefix rather than an address is assigned to the server. The authorised client creates a unique destination address under the prefix using an encryption method when it commences communication. When a packet is received, the server checks the destination address and discards it if the check is unsuccessful. By doing so, the model can keep up with the current Internet while preventing attackers from identifying the server and performing scans or attacks. In this study, the prototype is put into use, and numerous experiments are carried out. The outcomes show that the model can enhance server security.
