A New Protocol for Securing Wireless Sensor Networks against Nodes Replication Attacks
—The low-cost, unattended nature and the capability of self-organizing of sensors, yield the use of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) very popular to day. Unfortunately, the unshielded nature of sensors, their deployment in remote open (hostile) areas, and the use of wireless transmission medium, make them subject to several kind of threats and attacks, like eavesdropping, intrusion, Deny of Services (DoS) attacks and nodes compromising. While most of threats and attacks can be prevented using cryptographic materials (i.e. shared pairwise secret keys, certificates, etc.) provided by key management protocols, some other threats, like nodes replication attacks, can still go undetectable. Nodes replication attacks are harmful attacks, where an attacker compromising a node, uses its secret cryptographic key materials to successfully populate the network with several clones of it, in-order to gain the control over the network or disturb the normal operation of the network. Several nodes rep...
