Intrusion Detection System for AES Encripted Low-Power IoT Networks

Alessandro CopettiEduardo De Oliveira Burger Monteiro Luiz


The introduction of the IPv6 protocol solved the problem of providingaddresses to network devices. With the emergence of the Internetof Things (IoT), there was also the need to develop a protocolthat would assist in connecting low-power devices. The 6LoWPANprotocols were created for this purpose. However, such protocolsinherited the vulnerabilities and threats related to Denial of Service(DoS) attacks from the IPv4 and IPv6 protocols. In this paper, weprepare a network environment for low-power IoT devices usingCOOJA simulator and Contiki operating system to analyze theenergy consumption of devices. Besides, we propose an IntrusionDetection System (IDS) associated with the AES symmetric encryptionalgorithm for the detection of reflection DoS attacks. Thesymmetric encryption has proven to be an appropriate methoddue to low implementation overhead, not incurring in large powerconsumption, and keeping a high level of system security. The maincontributions of this paper are: (i) implementation of a reflectionattack algorithm for IoT devices; (ii) implementation of an intrusiondetection system using AES encryption; (iii) comparison ofthe power consumption in three distinct scenarios: normal messageexchange, the occurrence of a refle...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.


Blastomycosis fungal infections spread through inhaling Blastomyces dermatitidis spores. Discover the latest research on blastomycosis fungal infections here.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.


Microbicides are products that can be applied to vaginal or rectal mucosal surfaces with the goal of preventing, or at least significantly reducing, the transmission of sexually transmitted infections. Here is the latest research on microbicides.
