Distributed resource allocation model with presence of multiple jammer for underwater wireless sensor networks

Sheetal Bagali, Ramakrishnan Sundaraguru


Underwater-wireless sensor network (WSN) are prone to the jamming attacks; mainly in case of reactive jamming. Reactive jamming has emerged as one of the critical security threat for underwater-WSN; this occurs due to the reactive jammer capabilities of controlling and regulating jamming duration. Further reactive jammer possesses low detection probability and high vulnerability; moreover the existing model has been designed in consideration with terrestrial-WSN. Hence these models possesses limited capabilities of detecting the jamming and distinguish among uncorrupted and corrupted packets; also it fails to adapt with the dynamic environment. Furthermore co-operative mechanism of jamming model is presented for utilizing the resources in efficient way; however only few existing work has been carried out through the co-operative jamming detection; especially under presence of multiple jammer nodes. For overcoming research issues this paper presents distributed resource allocation (DRA) model adopting cross layer architecture under presence of multiple jammer. DRA algorithm is designed for allocating resource to jammer user in optimal manner. Experiment outcome shows the proposed DRA model achieves much better detection rate considering multi-jammer environment. Thus aid in achieving much better detection accuracy, packet drop, packet transmission and resource utilization performance.
