When the number of connected devices increases, the chances of getting hacked also increases. IoT is the interconnection of smart devices to usher automation in most of the areas. It has been identified that the study of attack patterns on IoT networks are limited, hence it becomes difficult to recognize a methodology yet. This paper demonstrates the experiments carried out to analyse the IoT attacks on Wi-Fi camera and SCA attack to get AES key. The aim of this paper is to show intrusion to the network as a hacker through the unprotected Things (IoT) connected to the network for performing illegal activities. These experiments would be an eye-opener to the investigators and also leads to study the attack patterns in the IoT devices and then to derive the methodology for forensics analysis.
