Review Of Prevention Techniques For Denial Of Service (DOS) Attacks In Wireless Sensor Network

[Full Text]



Poonam Rolla, Manpreet Kaur



DOS Attacks, Prevention techniques, Security Goal, Wireless sensor network.



Wireless Sensor Networks comprised of several tiny sensor nodes which are densely deployed over the region to monitor the environmental conditions. These sensor nodes have certain design issues out of which security is the main predominant factor as it effects the whole lifetime of network. DDoS (Distributed denial of service) attack floods unnecessary packets in the sensor network. A review on DDoS attacks and their prevention techniques have been done in this paper.
