Abstract: Location based access in wireless sensor networks (WSN) are vulnerable to location spoofing attacks. In this paper, we investigate the physical layer (PHYlayer) authentication in the threat of an intelligent location spoofing attack. The intelligent attack can emulate the legitimate channel information and maximize its long-term cumulative reward. First, we analyze the feasibility of this intelligent attack and investigate how it threats to the networks. Specifically, we derive the optimal transmit power alloc…
