Clone attack detection in Wireless Sensor Networks using ASP Protocol

S. Raja Rajeswari, V. Seenivasagam, D. Karthiga


Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are employed in harsh environments where physically no protection can be given to all nodes, so there is a chance where the intruder can capture lonely nodes and transfer all the confidential information to some other generic nodes. Using this information, the intruder can replicate the captured node in large numbers and introduce clones in the network. These cloned nodes can induce large number of attacks. Various protocols have been previously proposed to resolve this attack but they grasp large amount of resources. To overcome the clone attack, a protocol namely Area Splitting Protocol (ASP) is proposed which makes use of the restricted resources only.
