In wireless multi-hop sensor networks, an intruder may launch some attacks due to packet dropping in order to disrupt the communication. Packet dropping and modification are common attacks that can be launched by an adversary to disrupt communication in wireless multi-hop sensor networks. Many schemes have been proposed to mitigate or tolerate such attacks, but very few can effectively and efficiently identify the intruders. To address this problem, we propose a simple yet effective scheme,
