Internet of Things (IoT) involves all the surrounding with smart devices to Internet and has been gaining more recognition because it provides substantial benefits in comparison to other systems. Further, due to the decentralized nature of IoT network many types of active and passive attacks are possible. The distributed denial of service is the active type of attack which reduces network performance. In this research work, technique of mutual authentication is designed which detects and isolates malicious nodes from the network and thus improves session resumption technique for minimizing execution time. The proposed technique has been implemented and also compared with existing technique in terms of certain parameters. These parameters are bandwidth consumption, routing overhead, and packet delivery ratio. The performance of proposed technique is evaluated in NS2 and results shows that proposed algorithm performs well in comparison to existing results.
