Wormhole attacks can destabilize or disable wireless sensor networks. In a typical wormhole attack, the attacker receives packets at one point in the network, forwards them through a wired or wireless link with less latency than the network links, and relays them to another point in the network. We first propose a centralized algorithm to detect wormholes and show its correctness rigorously. For the distributed wireless network, we proposes DAWN, Distributed detection Algorithm against Wormhole in wireless Network coding systems, by exploring the change of the flow directions of the innovative packets caused by wormholes. We find that the robustness depends on the node density in the network, and prove a necessary condition to achieve collision-resistance. Our solutions only depend on the local information that can be obtained from regular network coding protocols, and thus the overhead that our algorithms introduce is acceptable for most applications.
