Internet of things (IoT) comprises many heterogeneous nodes that operate together to accomplish a human friendly or a business task to ease the life. Generally, IoT nodes are connected in wireless media and thus they are prone to jamming attacks. In the present scenario jamming detection (JD) by using machine learning (ML) algorithms grasp the attention of the researchers due to its virtuous outcome. In this research, jamming detection is modelled as a classification problem which uses several features. Using one/two or minimum number of features produces vague results that cannot be explained. Also the relationship between the feature and the class label cannot be efficiently determined, specifically, if the chosen number of features for training is minimum (say 1 or 2). To obtain good results, machine-learning algorithms are trained by large number of data sets. However, collection of large number of datasets to solve jamming detection is not easy and most of the times generation and collection of large data sets become paradigmatic. In this paper, to solve this problem, more number of features with nominal number of data’s is considered that eases the data collection and the classification accuracy. In this research, an efficient technique based on locality sensitive hashing (LSH) for K-nearest neighbor algorithm (K-NN), which takes less time for constructing and querying the hash table that gives good accuracy is proposed and evaluated. From the results, it is clear that the obtained results are validatable and the model is more sensible.
