Abstract

Wireless Medical Sensor Networks (WMSN) will play a significant role in the advancements of modern healthcare applications. Security concerns are still the main obstacle to the widespread adoption of this technology. Conventional security approaches, such as authentication and encryption, are able to defend against external attacks effectively. However, internally launched threats, either by compromised or selfish nodes, require further security measures to be detected. In this paper, an Effective Trend-Aware Reputation Engine (ETAREE) is proposed for WMSN. ETAREE uses a novel updating mechanism to evaluate the reputation value, which makes it effective in detecting malicious nodes. Moreover, the proposed updating mechanism of ETAREE can efficiently detect on-off attacks. ETAREE security evaluations have been presented and compared with different reputation evaluation models, demonstrating faster detection of malicious behaviours.
