This paper presents a robust energy-based target localization method in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) in the presence of Byzantine attacked sensors. Byzantine attacks will cause sensors to send false information to the fusion centre and disturb the target localization method. Therefore, a robust energy-based target localization method is needed to counter the Byzantine attacks and a method is presented in this paper. The method presented in this paper assumes that the fusion centre knows the exact information about the percentage of Byzantine sensors and the attack probability. If the fusion centre does not know the Byzantine attack information, a Byzantine sensor identification scheme can be used to identify Byzantine sensors.
