Wireless networks are vulnerable to sybil attacks, in which a sybil node forges multiple identifications to trick the system and conduct harmful attacks. The traditional approach to address sybil attacks is to employ cryptographic-related methods. However, conventional security approaches may not always desirable due to their infrastructural overhead. In this paper, we propose to utilize K-means cluster analysis for detecting sybil attacks based on the spatial correlation between the signal… CONTINUE READING
