With the increasing application of wireless sensor network technology in various areas of social life, the security issues it faces have become an important factor restricting its development. IPSEC is a standard framework defined by the IETF, which provides transparent security services for IP network communications. Based on the reference of the IPSEC protocol framework, this paper uses tunnel mode to perform AH and ESP security processing on data packets, and deletes the key management module. In this paper, the functions of AH and ESP are verified in the environment. The experimental results show that the lightweight protocol based on IPSEC proposed in this paper can provide multiple pre-designed information security functions, and has passed AES and DES. Tests of commonly used encryption algorithms have concluded that the AES encryption algorithm is more suitable for IPv6 wireless sensor networks. The research results of this paper will provide a good paradigm role for solving network security.
