The Internet of Things, or “IoT” in short, refers to an internetwork of everyday objects which are embedded systems that allow these objects to send and receive data from each other, without any form of human intervention. Due to the rapidly growing numbers of IoT devices, IoT security has been of utmost importance for all IoT hardware and software vendors. The aim of this report is to provide a documentation of the in-depth study of communication channels for the Internet of Things (IoT) devices and identify the gaps of existing security protocols of IoT communication channels. In this report, two authentication concepts (Passphrase-based and One-Time Password) and a lightweight Intrusion Detection System were proposed to solve the issue on “Insufficient Authentication/Authorization”, based on the OWASP Top 10 Internet of Things vulnerabilities, taking into consideration the resource constraints of current IoT devices.
