The IETF designed the Routing Protocol for Low power and Lossy Networks (RPL) as a candidate for use in constrained networks. Keeping in mind the di↵erent requirements of such networks, the protocol was designed to support multiple routing topologies, called DODAGs, constructed using di↵erent objective functions, so as to optimize routing based on divergent(More)
RPL is a routing protocol for low-power and lossy constrained node networks. A malicious node can manipulate header options used by RPL to track DODAG inconsistencies, thereby causing denial of service attacks, increased control message overhead, and black-holes at the targeted node. RPL counteracts DODAG inconsistencies by using a fixed threshold, upon(More)
The growing interest for the Internet of Things is contributing to the large-scale deployment of Low power and Lossy Networks (LLN). These networks support communications amongst objects from the real world, such as home automation devices and embedded sensors, and their interconnection to the Internet. An open standard routing protocol, called RPL, has(More)
Most devices deployed in the Internet of Things (IoT) are expected to suffer from resource constraints. Using specialized tools on such devices for monitoring IoT networks would take away precious resources that could otherwise be dedicated towards their primary task. In many IoT applications such as Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) networks, higher(More)
The concept of Internet of Things involves the deployment of Low power and Lossy Networks (LLN) allowing communications among pervasive devices such as embedded sensors. The IETF designed the Routing Protocol for Low power and Lossy Networks (RPL) for supporting these constrained networks. Keeping in mind the different requirements of such networks, the(More)
