Abstract: This week's ebiquity lab meeting will comprise of presentation by Ebiquity student, Lisa Matthews.

Lisa will talk on - Detecting Comprised Nodes in Wireless Sensor Networks

While wireless sensor networks are proving to be a versatile tool, many of the applications in which they are implemented have sensitive data. In other words, security is crucial in many of these applications. Once a sensor node has been compromised, the security of the network degrades quickly if there are not measures taken to deal with this event. There have been many approaches researched to tackle the issue. In my thesis, I presented an anomaly-based intrusion detection system to detect compromised nodes in wireless sensor networks. An algorithm to detect the compromised sensor nodes was developed, and simulations were conducted to verify the design.
