Abstract: Internet of Things (IoT) has emerged as a new horizon in communication age. IoT has provided platform to various emerging technologies and applications for growth. E-Health services have also been integrated and greatly benefitted from IoT. Due to the increased use of computer technology, computer networks have faced serious security challenges and IoT is also facing the same security threats. As IoT has provided platform to other fields, like E-Health, these services are also prone to such threats. Denial of Service (DoS) and Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks on E-Health servers in IoT would endanger real-time monitoring of patients and also overall reliability of the E-Health services. In this paper, existing solutions to DoS/DDoS attacks in IoT have been reviewed and a reliable solution is presented for securing the servers against these attacks.
