Agent Based Security Framework towards Misrouting Attack in Wireless Sensor Networks under Node Replication

Authors(2) :-Rama Chaithanya Tanguturi, C. Jayakumar

Drastic development in wireless technology increased the demand for Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) applications for monitoring areas of interest. The sensible information monitored by the sensor nodes need to be securely communicated to the sink. Even after the evolution of mobility in the wireless sensor networks, a large number of application deploying static nodes. Node replication in WSN gives the attacker a chance to perform various attacks. One of the major attacks in this category was misrouting attack. The replicated node changes the route of the non-captures nodes resulting entire network compromise. We proposed an agent based security frame work which makes the non-captures nodes will not affected by the captures nodes thereby increase the resilience of the network under misrouting attack.
