ABSTRACT
Base station (BS) location privacy has been widely studied and researched in different applications like field monitoring, agriculture, industry and military etc. The purpose is to hide the location of BS from outside/inside attacker in any shape. Hundreds of thousands of sensor nodes are deployed in some area, bring lot of new challenges regarding routing, forwarding, scaling and security. Different approaches are there to provide location privacy in wireless sensor networks (WSN). The work done by researchers is to provide some form of BS location privacy either different from others or boosting them more. In our scheme, we proposed a new algorithm MimiBS “Mimicking Base-Station”. All the deployed aggregator nodes (ANs) in the field/area will be looking like BS, even if the attacker knows about any AN, he will be deceived between the real BS and AN. We approached different schemes for our proposed algorithm mentioning routing without fake packets, with fake packets, without energy consideration and with energy consideration. These different parameters show an improvement over previous work regarding the same problem.
