The Internet of Things (IoT) vulnerabilities provides an ideal target for botnets, making them a major contributor in the increased number of Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks. The increase in DDoS attacks has made it important to address the consequences it implies on the IoT industry being one of the major causes. The aim of this paper is to provide an analysis of the attempts to prevent DDoS attacks, mainly at a network level. The sensibility of these solutions is extracted from their impact in resolving IoT vulnerabilities. It is evident from this review that there is no perfect solution yet for IoT security, this field still has many opportunities for research and development.
