Abstract: The Wireless Sensor Networks offers a wide range of applications due to the high sensing and processing speed of sensor nodes. Since sensor nodes are often deployed in a hostile, unattended, unsafe environment, they are susceptible to many sensible attacks. One such attack is a replication attack or Clone node or identity attack, is a type of insidious attack in which the attacker captures an authentic node, extracts from it all secret credentials and generates replicas identical to the original. These replicas are then used to disrupt its normal functionality by the attacker during the network setup. Several studies have provided many methods to curb replicas, but wireless communication remains an enormous challenge. Our proposed model defines a new mechanism, namely BS-SECCISRNNA (Secure Key Exchange Combined Clone Identification & Secure Neighbour Node Authentication Base Station). This method provides an efficient and quicker identification of clones at multiple locations in the network over a shorter period of time. Simulation results show that our proposed schemes can identify clones simultaneously at multiple locations and define an alternate path for future data transmission.
