Abstract

Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is a network of nodes connected through a wireless channel. The sensor nodes in the network are resource constrained in terms of energy, storage and computational power. Node failure is a common phenomenon, which occurs due to environmental factors, adversary attacks, draining of battery power, etc. After node failure, recovery is challenging that needs a strong mechanism. In this paper, Blockchain-based Node Recovery (BNR) scheme for WSNs is proposed. In BNR scheme, recovery of failed nodes is on the basis of node degree. The working mechanism of the scheme is that firstly, the failed nodes are detected using the state (active or inactive) of Cluster Heads (CHs). In the second phase, the recovery process is initiated for inactive nodes. The main purpose of this step is to recover the failed CH, which ultimately results in restoring the active states of its member nodes. NodeRecovery Smart Contract (SC) is written for the purpose. The cost analysis for NodeRecovery is also performed in the proposed work. Moreover, the security analysis is performed to ensure the security of the proposed scheme. Effectiveness of the proposed model is shown by the simulation results.
