Secure Distributed Cluster Formation in Wireless Sensor Networks

Secure Distributed Cluster Formation in Wireless Sensor Networks
In wireless sensor networks, clustering sensor nodes into small groups is an effective technique to achieve scalability, self-organization, power saving, channel access, routing, etc. A number of cluster formation protocols have been proposed recently. However, most existing protocols assume benign environments, and are vulnerable to attacks from malicious nodes. In this paper, we propose a secure distributed cluster formation protocol to organize sensor networks into mutually disjoint cliques. Our protocol has the following properties: (1) normal nodes are divided into mutually disjoint cliques; (2) all the normal nodes in each clique agree on the same clique memberships; (3) while external attackers can be prevented from participating in the cluster formation process, inside attackers that do not follow the protocol semantics can be identified and removed from the network; (4) the communication overhead is moderate; (5) the protocol is fully distributed.
