Network Coding (NC) can be applied to achieve the maximal information flow in a network. In energy-constraint wireless networks such as wireless sensor networks, applying NC can further reduce the number of wireless transmissions and hence prolong the life time of sensor nodes. In this paper, a distributed algorithm is developed to effectively detect, locate, and isolate the Byzantine attackers in a wireless ad hoc network with Random Linear Network Coding (RLNC). To the best of the authors' knowledge, their work is the first to address the problem of Byzantine failures in a wireless network with RLNC.
