Injecting false data attack is a well-known serious threat to wireless sensor network, for which an adversary reports bogus information to sink causing error decision at upper level and energy waste in en-route nodes. In this paper, the authors propose a novel Bandwidth-Efficient Cooperative AutheNtication (BECAN) scheme for filtering injected false data. This uses fixed timer to filter the packets in prior. The proposed BECAN scheme uses random graph characteristics of sensor node deployment, Co-operative Neighbor Router (CNR) to save energy by early detecting and filtering the most of injected false data with less time and difficulty at en-route nodes.
