Wireless sensor network (WSN) systems for safety-critical, space and Internet of Things applications have recently begun to adopt open standards and commercial-off-the-shelf equipment, and persistently face challenges of malicious intrusion and spectrum coexistence. These threats are explored through Monte-Carlo simulation and benchtop testing, including matched protocol interference and sophisticated, interactive intrusion attacks. The need for expanding intrusion detection via a more holistic approach, whilst simultaneously improving WSN security, is illustrated. Discussions on WSN security, vulnerabilities, and attacks are also provided.
