Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are currently used in many application scenarios, including industrial applications and factory automation. In such scenarios, Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) is typically used for data communication among sensor nodes. However, TDMA-based WSNs are particularly prone to Selective Jamming attack, a specific form of Denial of Service attack aimed at severely thwarting network reliability. In this paper, we present SAD-SJ, a self-adaptive and decentralized MAC-layer solution against selective jamming in TDMA-based WSNs. SAD-SJ does not need a central entity, requires sensor nodes to rely only on local information, and allows them to join and leave the network without hindering other nodes activity. We show that SAD-SJ introduces a limited overhead, in terms of computation, communication and energy consumption.

Abstract

Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are currently used in many application scenarios, including industrial applications and factory automation. In such scenarios, Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) is typically used for data communication among sensor nodes. However, TDMA-based WSNs are particularly prone to Selective Jamming attack, a specific form of Denial of Service attack aimed at severely thwarting network reliability. In this paper, we present SAD-SJ, a self-adaptive and decentralized MAC-layer solution against selective jamming in TDMA-based WSNs. SAD-SJ does not need a central entity, requires sensor nodes to rely only on local information, and allows them to join and leave the network without hindering other nodes activity. We show that SAD-SJ introduces a limited overhead, in terms of computation, communication and energy consumption.
