Hi Fabian,

thanks for the nice overview of the current and the possible future state of the RPL implementation in RIOT.
I like your plan for modular reorganisation of RPL. 
The encapsulation enables extensions and ease maintenance on specific parts.

Im working with security in RPL and would like to provide an exchangeable 'security module' that protects RPL against routing attacks.
It would perfectly fit between RPL DODAG and RPL Core in your plan. 
Right now we have an implementation of the security architecture TRAIL (https://github.com/RIOT-OS/RIOT/pull/386) that is heavy entangled with the current state of RPL.
In short it protects against deliberate rank announcements.

I would like to collaborate to define interfaces for possible security mechanisms in the future RPL implementation.

Best regards,
