Exploring the symbiotic nature of biological systems can result in valuable knowledge for computer networks. Biologically inspired approaches to security in networks are interesting to evaluate because of the analogies between network security and survival of human body under pathogenic attacks. Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is a network based on multiple low-cost, low-energy sensor nodes connected to physical signals. The network is made up of sensor nodes and gateways, where the server nodes acquire physical world data, while the gateway forwards the data to the end-user. While the spread of viruses in wired systems has been studied in-depth, applying trust in wireless sensor network nodes is an emerging area. This paper uses machine learning techniques to first differentiate between fraudulent and good nodes in the system. Next, it derives inspiration from the human immune system to present an idea of virtual antibodies in the system, to disable the fraudulent nodes in the system. © 2013 IEEE.
