Attacks on Geographic Routing Protocols for Wireless Sensor Network

Panda , Sunil Kumar and Ramteke, Rahul G (2011) Attacks on Geographic Routing Protocols for Wireless Sensor Network. BTech thesis.



With the increase in the military and several other applications of Wireless Sensor Network, provisions must be made for secure transmission of sensitive information
throughout the network. Most of the routing protocols proposed for ad-hoc networks and sensor networks are not designed with security as a goal. Hence, many routing
protocols are vulnerable to an attack by an adversary who can disrupt the network or harness valuable information from the network. Routing Protocols for wireless sensor networks are classified into three types depending on their network structure as Flat routing protocols, Hierarchical routing protocol and Geographic routing protocols. Large number of nodes in a wireless sensor network , limited battery power and their data centric nature make routing in wireless sensor network a challenging problem. We mainly concentrate on location-based or geographic routing protocol like Greedy Perimeter Stateless Routing Protocol. Sybil attack and Selective forwarding attack are the two attacks feasible in GPSR. These attacks are implemented in GPSR and their losses caused to the network are analysed.
