Detection of Wormhole Attacks in Wireless Sensor Networks

Seth, Mohan (2013) Detection of Wormhole Attacks in Wireless Sensor Networks. BTech thesis.



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. This paper describes a wormhole detection algorithm for wireless sensor networks, which detects wormholes based on the distortions they create in a network. The two characteristics are to keep tracks of all its neighboring nodes and checks if a node received is from its neighbor or not. The main advantage of the algorithm is that it can provide the approximate location of wormholes, which is useful in implementing countermeasures.
