LEDS: Providing Location-Aware End-to-End Data Security in Wireless Sensor Networks
Abstract— Providing end-to-end data security, i.e., data confidentiality, authenticity, and availability, in wireless sensor networks (WSNs) is a non-trivial task. In addition to the large number and severe resource constraint of sensor nodes, a particular challenge comes from potential insider attacks due to possible node compromise, since a WSN is usually deployed in unattended/hostile environments. Existing security designs provide a hop-by-hop security paradigm only, which leaves the end-to-end data security at high stake. Data confidentiality and authenticity is highly vulnerable to insider attacks, and the multihop transmission of messages aggravates the situation. Moreover, data availability is not sufficiently addressed in existing security designs, many of which are highly vulnerable to many types of Denial of Service (DoS) attacks, such as report disruption attacks, selective forwarding attacks, etc. In this paper, we seek feasible solutions to overcome these vulnerabili...
