In recent years, billions of devices have been connected through the Internet of things (IoT) and continuously shared data. The extreme connectivity of these devices makes the IoT vulnerable to different cyber-attacks, leading to financial and information loss. Due to such threats, the IoT demands a secure infrastructure and is in dire need of security. This work proposes a deep learning model for the detection of cyber threats in IoT. This work used the DNNLSTM algorithm for the detection of threats.

Further, publicly available CICIDS 2018 is used for the training of the proposed algorithm. The proposed model achieved an accuracy of 99.92%, with a recall of 99.50%. This work also compared the proposed model with two other algorithms (GRU and LSTMGRU), trained on the same dataset as well as with existing literature. The proposed model outclassed the other algorithms and existing literature in accuracy and different evaluation metrics.
