Detection and Prevention of the Passive Attack in Wireless Sensor Network
- Country : India
- Subject : Computer Science
WSNs are composed of numerous small sensor nodes which are prone to several active and passive attacks. This paper studies the passive attack in which intruder sends huge amount of packets to the sink node to create congestion over it. Furthermore, trust based scheme to detect and prevent against such kind of attack has been described in the paper. The scheme has been compared against the current approach based on throughput, remaining energy and delay. The scheme has outperformed the prevalent scheme.
