Abstract:

In this paper, leveraging recent advancement in MEMS and NANO technology, we introduce a new type of denial of service attack to wireless networks low power, distributed jammer network DJN. Jamming attack on wireless networks was traditionally treated from the perspective of individual jammers. We advocate an approach from a networked perspective, and using this networked approach we show that some interesting results can be obtained. In the paper, we demonstrate that DJN can cause a phase transition in the performance of the target network. We employ Percolation Theory to explain such phase transition, analyzing the impact of DJN on the connectivity of the target network, and providing lower and upper bounds for percolation of the target network to occur in the presence of DJN. We also provide scaling relationship of the node intensity and the number of jammers with power constraints.
