Improving Source Location Privacy Using Effective Localization in Sensor Networks
Many protocols have been developed to provide privacy in wireless sensor networks. Contextual privacy is less concentrated in sensor networks compared to the content related privacy. Some technique provides data only from the local adversaries. In terms of well funded attacker, they can launch attacks such as back tracing and traffic analysis. To achieve source location privacy there is always a tradeoff between latency and location privacy. Proposed scheme focused on effective localization for improving source location privacy. Proposed algorithm uses the distance error calculation and proper refining of the location and periodical updating to the neighbors. Due to these procedures this method increases privacy in terms of latency and communication overhead. Through the Simulation and analysis, we exhibit that our proposed method is effective and efficient in protecting the source location privacy.
