Intrusion Detection Based Security Solution for Cluster-Based Wireless Sensor Networks
Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is an emerging technology that shows great promise for various applications both for mass public and military. The sensing technology combined with processing power and wireless communication makes it lucrative for being exploited in abundance in the future. In many important military and commercial applications, it is critical to protect a sensor network from malicious attacks, which presents a demand for providing security mechanisms in the network. In this paper, the authors propose a new approach of an intrusion detection based security solution for cluster-based wireless sensor networks. In the proposed methodology, an efficient MAC address based intruder tracking system has been developed for early intruder detection and its prevention.
