Seamless integration of wireless sensor networks (WSN) with conventional IP-based networks is a very important basis for the Internet of Things (IoT) concept. To realize this goal, it is important to implement the IP protocol stack into a WSN. A global IP-based network is currently going through a transition from IPv4 to IPv6. Therefore, IPv6 should have priority in the implementation of the IP protocol into WSN. The paper analyses the existing security threats and possible countermeasures in IPv6-based WSNs. It also analyzes the implementation of a unique security framework for IPv6-based WSNs. The paper also analyzes a possible intrusion detection system for IPv6-based WSNs.
