Abstract:  The past few years have seen a meteoric rise in the use of IoT (Internet of Things) devices. This has resulted in malicious attackers targeting IoT devices more and more. The reluctance of users to change the default credentials of such devices has made attacking the devices much more effective. A major example of such attacks being the mirai botnet attack on October 2016 that targeted DNS providers and rendered many major websites unavailable. To counter this rapid increase in IoT attacks, we propose a new IoT honeypot that can capture attacks coming through 4 common channels: Telnet, SSH, HTTP and CWMP. The attacks which are captured are then analyzed to find common patterns and gain threat intelligence.
