The Quality of Source Location Protection in Globally Attacked Sensor Networks
Source: Rutgers University
The authors propose an efficient scheme for generating fake network traffic to disguise the real event notification in the presence of a global eavesdropper, which is especially relevant for the quality of service in delay-intolerant applications monitoring rare and spatially sparse events, and deployed as large wireless sensor networks with single data collector. The efficiency of the scheme that provides statistical source anonymity is achieved by partitioning network nodes randomly into several node groups. Members of the same group collectively emulate both temporal and spatial distribution of the event.
