Abstract—Wireless Sensor Networks consists of tiny devices which processes and routes the sensed data. The process of detecting any external and internal intruders entering to a Wireless Sensor Network area is referred to as intrusion detection. An intruder is a moving attacker entering a particular area. In this paper, we propose an algorithm Secure and Energy Efficient Approach for Detection of Intruder (SEEDI) in homogeneous Wireless Sensor Networks. Single sensing and Multi-sensing intruder detection are considered in our algorithm. Simulation results showed that the proposed algorithm resulted in better performance.
Index Terms—Intrusion detection, node density, sensing range, transmission range, wireless sensor network.
