Adaptation of honeypot solutions for WSN

Krzysztof Lasota, Ewa Niewiadomska-Szynkiewicz, Adam Kozakiewicz


The article is devoted to security aspects of Wireless Sensor Networks. Starting with review and classification of existing threats and methods of improving security, the paper presents an idea of securing WSNs using honeypots for verification of its proper functioning. Several implementation possibilities are presented, as well as identification of the services which lend themselves to proposed mode of
