Node replication attack is a common attack mode in wireless sensor networks. Attackers capture certain sensor nodes, replicate them and deploy several replicas back into the network for further malicious activities. A number of protocols have been proposed so far to tackle node replication attacks. However, to the best of our knowledge, none of these schemes are suitable for mobile wireless sensor networks because most of simple distributed solutions need to use node positions, system synchronous clock and other Characteristic data. In this paper, we propose a range-based detection method (RBDM) to detect replication attacks in wireless sensor networks. In this method, wireless ranging information between nodes is used to detect node replication attacks. The method can maintain a high probability of detection with Low accuracy ranging between nodes. Our theoretical analysis and simulation results show that the method is efficient and practical in detection of replication attacks in wireless sensor networks
