Wireless sensor network (WSNs) have now been used in a large number of civil and military applications. In addition to the environment and habitat monitoring, WSNs are now widely used in, for example, health care applications, forest fire monitoring applications, smart grid monitoring applications, as well as industrial monitoring and control applications. Unfortunately, WSNs have also suffered from cyber hacking. Security in WSNs has become extremely important as this type of network is vulnerable to attack due to its inherent weakness such as limited capabilities (e.g., processing power and memory), and open nature of wireless communication media. Several approaches have been developed to secure and protect WSNs from cyber-attack. Since many of the WSNs are deployed to achieve some specific objectives for a certain period of time, it is important to design a WSN such that it remains operational even if some network entities are compromised. In this seminar, some design strategies for survivable WSNs will be discussed. Furthermore, result of investigation on the use of WSNs for identifying a compromised control device in an industrial process will also be presented.

Dr. Ataul Bari received his BCS, MSc and Ph.D. degrees, all in Computer Science, from the University of Windsor, Windsor, Ontario, Canada. He is now working as a Research Engineer at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering in the University of Western Ontario, London, Ontario, Canada.

He has been awarded several provincial and federal level scholarships during the course of his graduate studies, including NSERC PGD-D; NSERC CGS-M and OGS. Dr. Bari's research interests include wireless sensor networks (WSNs), particularly those used in industrial settings. He is a member of the editorial boards in several reputed journals. He has also served as a TPC member in several international conference organizing committees including IEEE INFOCOM, GLOBECOM and ICC. His current research focus is in application of wireless sensor networks for industrial plant and equipment condition monitoring, process fault diagnosis, and remote monitoring of industrial environments. His other research interests include optical networks, cellular networks and bioinformatics.
