Because the Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) nodes are low-cost devices, attackers may capture some nodes in this network and then duplicate these nodes to eavesdrop the transmitted messages or even control the network gradually without difficulty. This is the so-called node replication attack. This type of attacks could cause the huge threat to information security of WSNs. Therefore, in this paper, we would like to suggest a detection approach which can offer good performance but with higher energy consumption. Hence, it can provide an alternative solution for some specific applications that need better precision but do not care energy or lifespan too much.
