Novel LDoS attack detection by Spark-assisted correlation analysis approach in wireless sensor network - 2020

Research Area:  Wireless Sensor Networks


Low-rate denial of service (LDoS) attack is a special DoS attack type of wireless sensor network (WSN). Routing protocol is the critical component of the WSN. Routing flood attack is a novel LDoS attack pattern in WSN. However, the attack is difficult to be detected by traditional intrusion detection algorithm. A novel LDoS attack detection method based on big data and signal analysis is proposed. Hilbert–Huang Transform (HHT) time–frequency signal analysis method is used to analyse the small non-linear signal from LDoS attack traffic signal. Spark-based Pearson and Spearman correlation coefficient calculation approaches are used to recognise the false intrinsic mode functions (IMFs) components decomposed by the HHT method. The effective threshold value of Pearson correlation coefficient is set to 0.2, the effective threshold value of Spearman correlation coefficient is set to 0.3, which are united to identify the false IMF components. SunSpot wireless nodes are used to build the wireless sensor nodes. If the difference between the IMF component and the normal IMF component is more than 40%, the LDoS attack will be detected. Experimental results show that this approach is effective to detect the LDoS attack in ZigBee WSN. This is a quantitative LDoS attack detection experimental research in WSN.
