Localization refers to locating the position or area in which the sensor or object to be tracked. Based on the localization, many applications are emerging in the wireless sensor network. Since the wireless sensor network is a shared medium, jamming attacks can be launched by adversary emitting the radio frequency signal. Therefore jamming attacks affect the localization process. Range based methods like Received Signal Strength Indication (RSSI) is affected a lot by physical jamming attacks.
