Five Basic Types of Insider DoS Attacks of Code Dissemination in Wireless Sensor Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Code dissemination is one of the important services of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). Securing the process of code dissemination is essential in some certain WSNs applications, state-of-the-art secure code dissemination protocols for WSNs aim for the efficient source authentication and integrity verification of code image, however, due to the resource constrains of WSNs and the epidemic behavior of the code dissemination system, existing secure code dissemination protocols are vulnerable to Denial of Service (DoS) attacks when sensor nodes can be compromised (insider DoS attacks).
