Abstract: In this paper, we present a clone detection technique for mobile wireless sensor networks. Since sensor nodes can be compromised and cloned by an adversary, it is desirable to have a distributed clone detection algorithm wherein the nodes in the network themselves identify cloned nodes. Most approaches in the literature have a deterministic set of witness nodes that check for the presence of cloned nodes for a given ID based by receiving claim messages that show two or more nodes with the same ID in different locations. We present a new approach to distributed clone detection called Distributed Detection using Prefix Matching (DDPM). Our approach is designed to work in a mobile sensor network and is based on using a random number and a hash function of the claiming nodes ID to generate a key. We then match the prefix of this key to sensor node IDs in the network to determine a set of inspector nodes that will detect clones for a given round. We demonstrate a 7-10% improvement in the n umber of witness nodes as a measure of security while also reducing the communication overhead. (More)
