Robust Range-Free Localization in Wireless Sensor Networks
Source: University of Victoria
In wireless sensor networks, sensors should have some mechanisms to learn their locations since sensed data without associated location information may be meaningless. While many sensor localization algorithms have been proposed, security issues in sensor localization are usually not addressed in their original design. Secure sensor localization is very challenging due to limited computation and energy resources in sensors. It is highly desirable that a localization scheme is robust and is able to detect malicious attacks without using complex cryptographic operations. In this paper, the authors present and analyze detection methods purely based on geometric constraints in sensor networks.
