TITLE: PERFORMANCE ANALYSIS OF DYNAMIC RPL UNDER MOBILE SYBIL ATTACK IN INTERNET OF THINGS
Abstract— The routing protocol for low power and lossy networks (RPL) is standardized to be an efficient routing protocol for resource-constrained networks like the Internet of Things. Implementing security and privacy becomes a great challenge, as the IoT devices are resource constrained and the communication links are lossy. This presentation is particularly focused on Sybil attack under mobility in the internet of things network. Sybil attack is the worst instant of network attack where an adversary fabricates the multiple fake identities to reduce the network efficiency. Moreover, this presentation details on the construction of Destination Oriented Directed Acyclic Graph (DODAG) tree in RPL based IoT networks. This work deals with a clear illustration on analysis and performance evaluation of RPL under Sybil attack in a lossy environment. The performance of RPL is evaluated under four evaluation metrics namely control overhead, energy cost, packet delivery ratio and the end to end delay.The proposed mobile Sybil attack demonstrates that how the network performance and RPL DODAG gets disrupted and overload the network traffic with fake control overheads. Finally, It illustrates the challenges and research issues on implementing the intrusion detection algorithm for mobile Sybil attack in IoT.
