Adoption of the Internet of Things (IoT) is gaining momentum with the introduction of smart devices and the reduction of sensing product costs. Such IoT systems are more likely to be attacked or breached, contributing to Denial of Service (DoS) and Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS). The high volume of IoT applications and high complexity, magnifies the risk for security threats. So far, there is no standard to ensure IoT devices are safe. But continuous monitoring along with proactive decision-making is required to enable resilience. These problems can be solved with the aid of Software Defined Networking (SDN), which can efficiently manage the IoT devices ' security threats automatically and adaptively without any pressure on the IoT equipment. In this article, we suggest a stable IoT system focused on SDN, named Soft Things, to identify and prevent suspicious activities and attacks as early as possible.
