Nowadays, modern technology includes various devices, networks, and apps from the internet of things (IoT), which consist of both positive and negative impacts on social, economic, and industrial effects. To address these issues, IoT applications and networks require lightweight, quick, and adaptable security solutions. In this sense, solutions based on artificial intelligence and big data analytics can yield positive outcomes in the realm of cyber security. This study presents a method called extreme gradient boost (XGBoost) based classification and regression tree to identify network intrusions in the IoT. This model is ideally suited for application in IoT networks with restricted resource availability because of its distributed structure and builtin higher generalization capabilities. This approach is thoroughly tested using botnet internet of things (BoT-IoT) new-generation IoT security datasets. All trials are conducted in a range of different settings, and a number of performance indicators are used to evaluate the effectiveness of the proposed method. The suggested study's findings provide recommendations and insights for situations involving binary classes and numerous classes. The suggested XGBoost model achieved 99.53% of accuracy in attack detection and 99.51% in precision for binary class and multiclass classifications, respectively.
