    “Internet of Things” (IoT), networking (potentially) a large number of
    resource-constrained devices, is gaining popularity in recent
    years. Today’s IoT systems are largely based on the use of the TCP/IP
    protocols (IPv6 in particular). However, the observations so far
    suggest that the TCP/IP protocol stack, as originally designed, is not
    a good fit to the IoT environment. Over the last several years the
    IETF has spent significant amount of effort in modifying the protocol
    stack to fit IoT deployment scenarios. These efforts have resulted in
    extensions to existing protocols in the TCP/IP protocol suite as well
    as development of multiple new protocols. Yet new problems
    continuously occur. In this paper we analyze the technical challenges
    in applying TCP/IP to the IoT environment and review various solutions
    proposed by the IETF. We argue that existing IP-based solutions are
    either inefficient or insufficient in supporting IoT applications, and
    that a more effective solution would embrace the Information Centric
    Network architecture.
