Detection & Isolation of Malicious Nodes in a WSN Using LEACH Protocol

Authors(3) :-Er. Himanshi Vashisht, Sanjay Bharadwaj, Sushma Sharma

A wireless sensor networks (WSN) is a recent advancement of technology of computer networks and electronics. They have a wide variety of applications ranging from data gathering to data transmission through wireless media. Along with these applications, WSN also has some weakness due to which its sensor nodes are vulnerable to most of the security threats. Denial-of-Service (DoS) attack is one of the most popular attack. This attack affects different layers of WSN and each layer has different type of DoS attack. A malicious node interferes in the system that needs to be detected and eliminated. For this we need a proper strategy. This is been studied in this paper.
