Status Report for IEEE 802.15.4 and 6LoWPAN in Linux (Stefan Schmidt, Samsung OSG) - This talk will put the spotlight on the linux-wpan project which brings IEEE 802.15.4 and 6LoWPAN support to the Linux Kernel. Designed for low power devices these protocols are ideal for the use of smart Things.

Over the last years IEEE 802.15.4 support has slowly found its way into the mainline kernel. The 6LoWPAN code is now shared with the Bluetooth stack and a new netlink interface has been merged together with new drivers. The matching wpan-tools userspace utility will be used to setup 6LoWPAN on your Linux system.

After the high level descriptions we will dive into the implementation for IP and UDP header compression, fragmentation and other parts of the stack. The talk will be finished with an outlook of missing pieces like link layer crypto, neighbor discovery optimization and RPL.
