DDOS is an abbreviated term for Distributed Denial of Services, caused when many infected (can be Trojan) sources are used for attacking a system. In the case of an IoT gateway network, the attacker tries to send multiple unauthorized and malicious requests or messages to the gateway, which then leads to a gateway responding multiple denial requests and jamming other critical processes of the gateway.
