Publication Abstract: 

In this paper, we propose an Intrusion Detection System (IDS) against Sinkhole attack in wireless sensor networks with mobile sink. In the detection model, the network area is divided into a flat grid of cells, and we use the signature-based technique, which is represented by the detection rate of a cell, to distinguish between real and fake sink nodes. The proposed IDS considers two types of sink mobility: periodic and random. In addition, as the cell leaders do not activate their IDS agent simultaneously, the additional energy consumption incurred by the IDS is low. Simulation results show the efficiency of the proposed IDS in terms of detection rate, efficiency, and energy consumption.
