Detection of Mobile Replica Nodes in Wireless Sensor Networks
In Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN), there are many nodes and they are unattended so an adversary can easily capture and compromise the sensor nodes and take secret key from the nodes then make many replicas (duplicate) of them. After getting the secret key from the sensor node the sensitive data which is present in the nodes get leaked so an adversary can quickly degrades the network communication. To avoid this node compromised attack the authors use Sequential Probability Ratio Testing (SPRT). In literature several compromised node detection works well in static sensor networks and they do not work well in mobile sensor networks. Using SPRT they detect the compromised node in mobile sensor networks.
