The so-called internet of things (IoT) technology that connects physical objects to internet network and provides with the cutting edge intelligent services has recently been attracting a lot of attention. However, this connectivity draws many problems because the serious risk of cyber-attacks has been moving further to the real world situations as physical objects become connected to internet. This paper will analyse the types of Dos attack techniques which are considered as a typical threat to IoT and provide with a method to prevent DoS attacks by utilizing iptables(firewalls) and PAM (Pluggable Authentication Modules) in Linux which serves as the operating system of home servers.
