One such wireless technology used to deploy sensitive network services requiring low rate communication, short distance application with low power consumption is the IEEE802.15.4 Low-Rate Wireless Personal Area Networks (LR-WPAN). These network services have stringent security requirements and, irrespective of the scale of deployment, the network should be secure enough to protect users, infrastructure, network services and applications. In this paper, we focus on the security mechanisms defined in the standard;evaluating it in the light of the ITU-T recommendation X.805 security architecture for end-to-end communication. We identify and assess the security dimensions, planes and layers in IEEE802.15.4 LR-WPAN as defined in the X.805 framework.
