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 reaching which all subsequent packets with erroneous header options are ignored. However, the fixed threshold is arbitrary and does not resolve… CONTINUE READING
