An IoT Attack Detection Framework Leveraging Graph Neural Networks

Onderzoeksoutput: Hoofdstuk in Boek/Rapport/CongresprocedureHoofdstukAcademicpeer review


We propose an attack detection framework for Internet of Things (IoT) networks, which leverages Graph Neural Networks (GNN) to capture the inherent structure of IoT network data. Specifically, we utilize GraphSAGE and propose a framework to detect network intrusions by capturing the graph’s edge features and data flow information for IoT networks. To evaluate the effectiveness of our approach, we use the Kitsune and BoT-IoT datasets that include botnet, Man-in-the-Middle (MiTM), Reconnaissance, Denial of Service (DoS), Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS), and information theft attacks. To reduce time complexity and analyze the significance of removing extraneous features, we conduct feature selection experiments also. Our study highlights the effectiveness of GNN-based attack detection for IoT security with 89.3% accuracy for kitsune and 88.6% accuracy for BoT-IoT and underscores the importance of unbiased cross-validation to ensure model performance.
