The Internet of Things (IoT) enables interconnectivity between (often) low-power devices to permit information exchange or environmental control. The explosion in popularity of IoT devices has meant that security has not been a principal requirement for IoT devices. This is particularly true for botnets, where a remote threat actor could control IoT devices. We examine the fundamentals of botnets and how they are detected. Our contribution is to examine two conventional botnet detection tools and to suggest the likely success of botnet implementation in IoT network environments. We also tested the session replay component of BotProbe.
