The technological advancements of Internet of Things (IoT) has revolutionized traditional Consumer Electronics (CE) into next-generation CE with higher connectivity and intelligence. This connectivity among sensors, actuators, appliances, and other consumer devices enables improved data availability, and provides automatic control in CE network. However, due to the diversity, decentralization, and increase in the number of CE devices the data traffic has increased exponentially. Moreover, the traditional static network infrastructure-based approaches need manual configuration and exclusive management of CE devices. Motivated from the aforementioned challenges, this article presents a novel Software-Defined Networking (SDN)-orchestrated Deep Learning (DL) approach to design an intelligent Intrusion Detection System (IDS) for smart CE network. In this approach, we have first considered SDN architecture as a promising solution that enables reconfiguration over static network infrastructure and handles the distributed architecture of smart CE network by separating the control planes and data planes. Second, an DL-based IDS using Cuda-enabled Bidirectional Long Short-Term Memory (Cu-BLSTM) is designed to identify different attack types in the smart CE network. The simulations results based on CICIDS-2018 dataset support the validation of the proposed approach over some recent state-of-the-art security solutions and confirms it a phenomenal choice for next-generation smart CE network.
