This paper presents a model for ensuring data integrity using anomalous node identification in non-homogeneous wireless sensor networks (WSNs). We propose the anomaly detection technique while collecting data using mobile data collectors (MDCs), which detect the malicious activities before sending to the base station (BS). Our technique also protects the leader nodes (LNs) from malicious activities to ensure data integrity between the MDC and the LNs. The proposed approach learns the data characteristics from each sensor node and passes it to the MDC, where detection engine identifies the victim node and eventually alarm the LNs in order to keep the normal behaviour in the network. Our empirical evidence shows the effectiveness our approach.

Conference9th International Conference on Security and Privacy in Communication Networks
OtherIn past 9 years, SecureComm has emerged as a leading international forum that covers all aspects of information and communications security with particular emphasis on security in communication and networking. SecureComm also serves as a venue for learning about the emerging trends in security and privacy research, giving participants the opportunity to network with experts in the field. The SecureComm is well recognised as one of the prestigious events for Information and Communication Technology (ICT) security community worldwide. In 2010, Australian Research Council (ARC) initiatives Excellence of Research in Australia (ERA) ranked SecureComm at the highest ranking level ‘A’.
