Low-Rate Wireless Personal Area Networks (LR-WPANs) have widespread usage for industrial applications because of being small, power-efficient, and low-cost. Therefore security is important issue for LR-WPANs. The IEEE 802.15.4 standard is one of the most common solutions for LR-WPANs that define only the physical and data-link layers of the model. For this reason most of security issues are ignored owing to scope of this standard. Hence, security mechanisms should be implemented in the applications. This paper presents using chaotic-based encryption in the IEEE 802.15.4 standard to secure communication.
