In today's digital landscape, Internet of Things (IoT) networking has grown dramatically broad. The major feature of IoT network devices is their ability to connect to the internet and interact with it through data collecting and exchanging. Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) is one form of cyber-attacks in which the hackers penetrate a single connection and then multiple machines are operating together to attack one target. The direct connectivity of IoT devices to the internet makes DDoS

Therefore, the intrusion detection module in the IoT networks is not optional in today's business environment. To achieve this objective, in this paper, an intelligent intrusion detection model is proposed to detect DDoS attacks in IoT networks. The intelligent model is a backpropagation neural network-based framework. The results are analyzed using different performance measures. The proposed model proves a detection rate of 99.46% and detection accuracy of 95.76% using the up-to-date benchmark CICDDoS2019 dataset. Furthermore, the proposed model has been compared with the most recent DDoS intrusion detection schemes and competitive performance is achieved.
