In this paper, we investigate the effects and challenges of using RPL’s security mechanisms under common routing attacks. First, a comparison of RPL’s performance, with and without its security mechanisms, under three routing attacks (Blackhole, Selective-Forward, and Neighbor attacks) is conducted using several metrics (e.g., average data packet delivery rate, average data packet delay, average power consumption… etc.) Based on the observations from this comparison, we came with few suggestions that could reduce the effects of such attacks, without having added security mechanisms for RPL.
