A Wireless Sensor Network-Based Defence Model against Selective Forwarding Attack

Yun Ji


Due to low communication costs and convenient deployment, wireless sensor network has been widely applied in various fields. However, it still has some problems in the defence against selective forwarding attacks. To address these problems, this paper proposes a model against selective forwarding attacks, which is built on the threshold secret sharing mechanism and adopts the individualized path routing protocol. Through simulation test, this paper studies the effects of attack intensity on the successful transmission rate and communication load under the same network deployment and communication topology but at different node densities and average neighbourhood degrees. The results show that this model can effectively defend against forwarding attacks, also saves communication resource, offering a technical reference for similar studies.
