The growing interest for the Internet of Things is contributing to the large-scale deployment of Low power and Lossy Networks (LLNs). 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 been specified by the IETF in order to address the specific properties and constraints of these networks. However, this protocol is exposed to a large variety of attacks.
