Abstract    Recently, underwater Wireless Sensor Networks (UWSNs) attracted the interest of many researchers and the past three decades have held the rapid progress of underwater acoustic communication. One of the major problems in UWSNs is how to transfer data from the mobile node to the base stations and choosing the optimized route for data transmission. Secure routing in UWSNs is necessary for packet delivery. A few researches have been done on secure routing in UWSNs. In this article, a new secure routing algorithm called Secure Routing Algorithm for Underwater (SRAU) sensor networks is proposed to resist against wormhole and sybil attacks. The results indicate acceptable performance in terms of increasing the packet delivery ratio regarding the wormhole and sybil attacks, increasing network lifetime through balancing the network energy consumption, high detection rates against the attacks, and decreasing the end to end delay.


Keywords    Underwater wireless sensor networks, security, routing, wormhole and sybil attacks.‎



اخیرا شبکه های حسگر بی سیم زیر آب توجه بسیاری از محققین را به خود جلب کرده است و ارتباطات صوتی نیز در طی سه دهه اخیر پیشرفت سریعی داشته است. یکی از مسائل اضلی در شبکه های حسگر بی سیم زیر آب این است که چگونه داده از گره متحرک به ایستگاه پایه ارسال شود و مسیر بهینه برای ارسال داده انتخاب شود. مسیریابی امن در شبکه های حسگر بی سیم زیر آب برای تحویل بسته ها الزامی است. تحقیقات اندکی روی بحث مسیریابی امن در این نوع شبکه ها صورت گرفته است. در این مقاله، یک الگوریتم مسیریابی امن جدید بنام SRAU ارائه می شود که در مقابل حملات wormhole و sybil مقاوم است. نتایج شبیه-سازی نشاندهنده کارایی قابل قبول روش پیشنهادی با توجه به معیارهای نرخ تجویل بسته، طول عمر شبکه و مصرف متوازن انرژی، نرخ تشخیص حملات و تاخیر انتها به انتها است.
