    Abstract :

    IPv6 over low power wireless personal area network (6LoWPAN) is used in wireless sensor network as it has ability to transmit IPv6 packet with low bandwidth and limited resources. Routing protocol for low power and lossy network (RPL) is routing protocol which is used by 6LoWPAN network. RPL can be exposed to various routing attacks that can damage the network. A sinkhole attack being most destructive routing attack that could affect the network by preventing communication across network devices. This paper aims to survey the existing mechanisms for detection of sinkhole attack on RPL based network in IoT.
