Location privacy measures need to be developed to prevent the adversary from determining the physical locations of source sensors and sinks. An adversary can easily intercept network traffic due to the use of a broadcast medium for routing packets. On the other hand, sensors usually have limited processing speed and energy supplies. So find alternative means to provide location privacy that accounts for the resource limitations of sensor nodes as well as provide privacy preserving protocols for source and sink location in such sensor networks. Thus in the proposed system the sinks should be located as optimally as possible to reduce traffic flow and energy consumption for sensor nodes.
