The privacy of sensitive events observed by a wireless sensor networks (WSN) needs to be protected. Adversaries with the knowledge of sensor deployment and network protocols can infer the location of a sensed event by monitoring the communication from the sensors even when the messages are encrypted. Encryption provides confidentiality; however, the context of the event can used to breach the privacy of sensed objects. An adversary can track the trajectory of a moving object or determine the… Expand

Location Privacy in Sensor Networks Against a Global Eavesdropper
This work argues that a strong adversary model, the global eavesdropper, is often realistic in practice and can defeat existing techniques and proposes two techniques that prevent the leakage of location information: periodic collection and source simulation. Expand
Preserving source location privacy in monitoring-based wireless sensor networks
While a wireless sensor network is deployed to monitor certain events and pinpoint their locations, the location information is intended only for legitimate users. However, an eavesdropper canExpand
