Abstract

Resource and power limited IPv6-based Low rate Wireless Personal Area Networks (6LoWPANs) requires energy efficient access control scheme for authentication, bootstrapping, and commissioning of prospective 6LoWPAN devices. In this paper, we propose an energy efficient lightweight mutual authentication scheme for 6LoWPANs which ensures secure network bootstrapping. The proposed scheme is independent of any key management infrastructure; keys or authentication secret data for mutual authentication is generated or transferred to 6LoWPAN device on-the-fly. Analysis of the proposed scheme have shown that the scheme is secure against various kinds of security and privacy attacks and is light-weight, adaptable, and scalable for 6LoWPANs.
