Abstract

Wireless Sensor Networks are often deployed to monitor physical phenomena, but are also particularly vulnerable to malicious attacks since: the deployments are often unattended; the sensors are physically accessible and the sensor hardware has limited computational resources. When several sensors have been compromised malicious data can be injected to create fake events or to mask the occurrence of actual events with potentially devastating consequences. Such attacks are difficult to detect especially when several compromised sensors may collude in the attack. In this talk I will discuss some of the challenges of this problem and present some of our early work on this topic.

 

Bio

Dr Emil Lupu leads the ACE-CSR at Imperial College. He is generally interested in techniques that allow systems to adapt and continue to operate even when they are under attack or have been partially compromised. He has worked in the past on policy-based techniques for network and systems management and autonomous pervasive systems, distributed access control, usage control, trust management and privacy amongst others.
