Energy-Efficient Patching Strategy for Wireless Sensor Networks
AbstractWireless sensor networks (WSNs) are vulnerable to computer viruses. To protect WSNs from virus attack, the virus library associated with each sensor node must be updated in a timely way. This article is devoted to developing energy-efficient patching strategies for WSNs. First, we model the original problem as an optimal control problem in which (a) each control stands for a patching strategy, and (b) the objective functional to be optimized stands for the energy efficiency of a patching strategy. Second, we prove that the optimal control problem is solvable. Next, we derive the optimality system for solving the optimal control problem, accompanied with a few examples. Finally, we examine the effects of some factors on the optimal control. The obtained results help improve the security of WSNs. View Full-Text
