In wireless sensor networks, the on-off attacker nodes can present good behaviors and then opportunistically and selectively behave badly to compromise the network. Such misbehaving nodes are usually difficult to be spotted by the network system in a short term. To address this issue, in this study, we propose a reputation scheme to mitigate the on-off attack. In addition, a penalty module is properly designed so that the reputation scheme can effectively respond to the on-off misbehaviors and make such nodes quickly detected by the system, hence the minimization of their influence. We confirm the feasibility and effectiveness of the proposed scheme through simulation tests.
