This document presents a security threat analysis for the Routing
Protocol for Low-Power and Lossy Networks (RPLs).  The development
builds upon previous work on routing security and adapts the
assessments to the issues and constraints specific to low-power and
lossy networks.  A systematic approach is used in defining and
evaluating the security threats.  Applicable countermeasures are
application specific and are addressed in relevant applicability

This document is a product of the Routing Over Low power and Lossy networks Working Group of the IETF.
