Virus Propagation Model for Wireless Sensor Networks Based on IPv6

Zhinan Zhou, Wendi Wang, Yuxia Li


This paper aims to disclose the features of virus propagation in wireless sensor networks (WSNs). To this end, the author analysed the data transmission mode of WSNs which follow IPv6 protocol. Then, the virus propagation in such networks was simulated and discussed under different scenarios. Based on the simulation results and the traditional virus propagation model, a new model was put forward to describe the virus transmission in IPv6 WSNs. The proposed model lays a theoretical basis for relevant studies and the guarantee of WSN security.
