Based on cooperative game theory, we propose a new technique for handling security issues in mobile wireless sensor networks. We define a game between sensor nodes and concentrate on three fundamental factors: cooperation, reputation and quality of security. Stronger cooperation between two nodes implies more reliable data communication between them. And the more a node cooperates the better is its reputation, which decreases when misbehavior is detected. When security of the network is… CONTINUE READING
