The rapid deployment of IoT systems on the public Internet is not
without concerns for the security and privacy of consumers. Security
in IoT systems is often poorly engineered and engineering for
privacy does not seem to be a concern for vendors at all. The combination
of poor security hygiene and access to valuable knowledge
renders IoT systems a much-sought target for attacks.
IoT systems are not only Internet-accessible but also play the
role of servers according to the established client-server communication
model and are thus configured with static and/or easily
predictable IPv6 addresses, rendering them an easy target for attacks.
We present 6HOP, a novel addressing scheme for IoT devices.
Our proposal is lightweight in operation, requires minimal administration
overhead, and defends against reconnaissance attacks, address
based correlation as well as denial-of-service attacks. 6HOP
therefore exploits the ample address space available in IPv6 networks
and provides effective protection this way.
