An Effective Minimization of Storage Overhead Fortracking Down The Invasion of Replicated Nodes in Wireless Sensor Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Wireless Sensor Networks are vulnerable because nodes are often placed in a hostile or dangerous environment, where they are not physically protected. A central problem in sensor network security is that sensors are susceptible to physical node capture attacks. Once a sensor is compromised, the adversary can easily launch replica attacks by duplicating the compromised node, distributing the replicas throughout the network and starting a variety of insider attacks. Previous works against replica attacks suffer from a high communication/storage overhead or poor detection accuracy. A new protocol called Node Location Maintenance (NLM) protocol is used. This employs a table of values at each node to record the trace of the random walks.
