Performance Analysis of Anti-Attack methods for RPL routing protocol in 6LoWPAN networks

Scientific and technological advancements, particularly in IoT, have greatly enhanced the quality of life in society. Nevertheless, resource constrained IoT devices are now connected to the Internet through IPv6 and 6LoWPAN networks, which are often unreliable and untrusted. Securing these devices with robust security measures poses a significant challenge. Despite implementing encryption and authentication, these devices remain vulnerable to wireless attacks from within the 6LoWPAN network and from the Internet. Researchers have developed various methods to prevent attacks on the RPL protocol within the 6LoWPAN network. However, each method can only detect a limited number of attack types, and there are still several drawbacks that require improvement. This study aims to implement several attack prevention methods, such as Lightweight Heartbeat Protocol, SVELTE, and Contiki IDS. The study will provide an overview of these methods theories and simulate them on Contiki OS using Cooja software to assess their performance. The study s results demonstrate a correlation between the simulated data and the proposed theories. Furthermore, the study identifies and evaluates the strengths and weaknesses of these methods, highlighting areas that can be improved upon.
