Distance vector-hop (DV-hop) is a localisation algorithm based on distance vector routing, which often suffers the wormhole attack. To solve this problem, a security DV-hop localisation algorithm against wormhole attack (AWDV-hop) is proposed. First, the algorithm establishes the neighbour node relationship list (NNRL) by broadcast flooding. All the nodes get the ID numbers of their neighbour nodes through NNRL. The suspect beacon nodes can be found by comparing the theoretical and actual number of neighbour nodes. Then, the suspect beacon nodes calculate the distances to other beacon nodes in their NNRL to find the actual attacked beacon nodes. The attacked beacon nodes in the different areas of wormhole attack are marked with 1 or 2. Finally, the unknown nodes mark themselves with 1 or 2 according to the beacon nodes marked before. In the next round of localisation, the nodes marked with 1 and the nodes marked with 2 disconnected from each other. The simulation results show that the localisation error of the proposed AWDV-hop algorithm is reduced by about 80% than that of DV-hop algorithm suffering from the wormhole attack. Compared to label-based DV-HOP (LBDV-hop) and secure neighbour discovery based DV-HOP (NDDV-hop) algorithm, the localisation error is reduced by about 7 and 34%, respectively.
