Wormholes No More? Localized Wormhole Detection and Prevention in Wireless Networks

  title={Wormholes No More? Localized Wormhole Detection and Prevention in Wireless Networks},
  author={Tassos Dimitriou and Thanassis Giannetsos},
A number of protocols have been proposed to date to defend against wormhole attacks in wireless networks by adopting synchronized clocks, positioning devices, or directional antennas. In this work, we introduce a novel approach for detecting wormhole attacks. The proposed algorithm is completely localized and works by looking for simple evidence that no attack is taking place, using only connectivity information as implied by the underlying communication graph, and total absence of coordination… CONTINUE READING
