It is foreseeable that in the near future any object will have an Internet connection - this is the Internet of Things vision. All these objects will be able to exchange and process information and all information will be accessible from Internet. Some of these objects, with wireless support, are characterized by small size, power constrains and small computing resources. Connecting such devices to the Internet is considered simultaneously the biggest challenge and a great opportunity for the Internet grow. To achieve the Internet of things vision is necessary to support IPv6 protocol suite in all objects. Supporting IPv6 simplifies the task of connecting objects to the Internet and the application developing process is also simplified and open. However, support IP suite protocol in low power and computing resource-constrained objects is an important challenge. This paper presents a complete solution to connect the smart objects to the Internet. Security measures were also one of the concerns in this solution. The paper also presents the design and deployment of a laboratory testbed to prove the proposed solution operation.
