A Novel Bogus Data Detection and Filtering Scheme for Wireless Sensor Networks
In many scenarios, wireless sensor networks are deployed in hostile environments. Adversaries could easily compromise sensor node, and bogus data could be injected into the network through the compromised sensor nodes, which decreases the accuracy of the sensing data and wastes scarce energy resources of the networks. In this paper, a novel bogus data detection and filtering scheme for wireless sensor networks was proposed based on one-way hash function. In the proposed scheme, if the sensing node was compromised, the based station could verify the endorsement report, and if the compromised forwarding node modified the report packet, the bogus data could be verified by the next forwarding node, and the modified report packet would be discarded. The analysis shows that the proposed scheme not only provides a high security level but also can detect most bogus data and achieve energy savings.
