Abstract : In this work, we present the process of identifying potential vulnerabilities in 6LoWPAN enabled networks through fuzzing. The 6LowPAN protocol has been designed by the IETF as an adaptation layer of IPv6 for Low power and lossy networks. The fuzzing process is build upon the Scapy packets manipulation library. It provides different mutation algorithms to be applied on 6LoWPAN protocol messages to assess its implementations security and robustness. The protocol behaviors are described using an XML format to define different testing scenarios.
