Abstract

Security is a key challenge for any IIoT network and more so for constrained IWSN deployments. Novel methods are thus required to enhance security, taking into account the lossy and low power nature of the IWSN. The use of ICMP ping packets is proposed and tested as a method to generate fingerprinting information for IWSN devices. The ICMP ping based method was evaluated on three different IWSN nodes in a star and multi-hop topology. The results showed that the effect of the physical layer can be averaged out of the measurement if enough samples are available. A linear relationship was found between hop count and round-trip time for a static network which can be used in the design phase of the IWSN network or alternatively as a method to fingerprint routing anomalies in real-time.
