IEEE 802.15.4e Security Module for the OpenWSN protocol stack

This page is dedicated to the open-source implementation of security module in OpenWSN protocol stack.

The main features covered by the conceived module are:

  1.  encryption of data packets exchanged between a couple of motes flashed with the OpenWSN protocol stack;
  2.  authenticity of data communications;
  3.  protection against replay attacks. 
  4.  different implementation strategies (Software, Hardware, Hybrid), for different hardware boards (TelosB and OpenMote-CC2538) 


A first baseline code, suited for IEEE 802.15.4-2011 networks, is freely available here

The final version of the code developed, with Software, Hardware and Hybrid Implementations, and adapted both to IEEE 802.15.4e-2012 TSCH mode and to IEEE 802.15.4-2015, is freely available here.


Please, see the file within each folder to understand how merging the code within the official release of OpenWSN and use it on real devices.
