IEEE Std 802.15.4-2015 Time Slotted Channel Hopping (TSCH) is the de facto Medium Access Control (MAC) mechanism for industrial applications. It renders communications more resilient to interference by spreading them over the time (time-slotted) and the frequency (channel-hopping) domains. The 6TiSCH architecture bases itself on this new MAC layer...

Integrated Access and Backhaul (IAB) allows to ease the deployment of gNodeBs (gNBs) in a 5G network by connecting them using cellular connectivity. The radio frequencies to achieve such a result can be the same as the ones used to connect User Equipment (UE) (in-band) or specific ones can be reserved (out-of-band). Both sub 6 GHz and millimeter wa...

Internet of things consist in the deployment of constrained and battery-powered devices with a radio interface. Most industrial applications require to respect strict reliability and delay constraints. Lossy links imply mechanisms to retransmit the packets to improve the reliability. However, transient faults (e.g. obstacles, interference) may also...
Article
Wireless communication is a key technology for the Internet of Things (IoT). Due to its open nature, the physical layer of wireless systems is a high-priority target for an adversary whose goal is to disrupt the normal behavior of the system. In particular, jamming attacks are one of the most straightforward and effective types of attacks: informat...

Context: Internet of Things (IoT) systems are increasingly deployed in the real world, but their security lags behind the state of the art of non-IoT systems. Moving Target Defense (MTD) is a cyberdefense paradigm, successfully implemented in conventional systems, that could improve IoT security. Objective: Identify and synthesize existing MTD tech...
Chapter
Full-text available
Due to uncontrolled interferences, including the self-induced multi-path fading, deterministic networking is difficult to achieve on wireless links. The radio conditions may change much faster than a centralized routing paradigm can adapt and reprogram, in particular when the controller is distant and connectivity is slow and limited. Reliable and...

Wireless industrial networks require reliable and deterministic communication. Determinism implies that there must be a guarantee that each data packet will be delivered within a bounded delay. Moreover, it must ensure that the potential congestion or interference will not impact the predictable properties of the network. In 2016, IEEE 802.15.4-Tim...
