Abstract [en]

As the demand for wireless sensor networks increases the need for new protocols with specific ways of distributing data emerges. Chaos is one of those protocols. Chaos has no native security countermeasures implemented, therefore it is important to test how vulnerable it is against attacks. In this thesis I present four novel attacks to test the robustness of Chaos. Experiments show that a Drizzle-attack was the most effective attack, strategic placement of the nodes was the key to a more efficient attack.
