Abstract

Wireless Sensor Networks are often deployed in unattended and hostile environments. These networks are susceptible to harsh physical conditions and attacks from adversaries. Sensor nodes have limited power, memory and computational ability and thus are vulnerable to capture. A few malicious adversaries can easily compromise sensor devices and inject false data to disrupt the integrity of the network. In this paper, we address this problem by proposing a three tiered architecture established upon a trust based framework which distinguishes illegal nodes from legal ones and filters out deceitful and forged data. Simulation results demonstrate that our trust based framework is an efficient approach to identify the trustworthiness of data.
