||Recently, with the development of IPv6 and Internet, wireless sensor network becomes more popular in Internet of thing. ZigBee Alliance announced ZigBee IP specification in 2013, which upgraded the protocol of wireless sensor network from IPv4 to IPv6, and solved the issue of the insufficient IP addresses.|
However, IPv6 wireless sensor network still faces wormhole attacks. The Wormhole attacks generate a wormhole tunnel, and cause neighbors to go through it. Which means the attackers can sniff, modify, or drop packets.
There are still some limitations in detecting method of wormhole attack in researches. For example, some researches require GPS support or precise synchronized time in the system.
This paper proposes wormhole detection system. Without any other hardware and system support, our solution analyst packets through RPL standard routing protocol only. We have a good detection rate, according to our experimental results.
