Discrete R-Contiguous bit Matching mechanism appropriateness for anomaly detection in Wireless Sensor Networks

Muhammad Zeeshan, Huma Javed, Sifat Ullah


Resource exhaustion is one of the main challenges for the security of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). The challenge can be addressed by using algorithms that are light weighted. In this paper use of light-weighted R-Contiguous Bit matching for attack detection in WSNs has been evaluated. Use of R-Contiguous bit matching in Negative Selection Algorithm (NSA) has improved the performance of anomaly detection resulting in low false positive, false negative and high detection rates. The proposed model has been tested against some of the attacks. The high detection rate has proved the appropriateness of R-Contiguous bit matching mechanism for anomaly detection in WSNs.
